Reviews:

4 Stars Michael Cooper
Deeply coloured, it is highly concentrated, with fresh, bold, plummy flavours and gentle tannins. Delicious young.

3 Stars of 84/100 from Bob Campbell MW
Light, fresh and fruity Pinot Noir with good varietal flavours of plum, red cherry and subtle spice. The wine has a fine-grained texture and drying finish with good acidity adding energy.

  • From Sustainable Production, accredited by Sustainable Winegrowing New Zealand
  • Montepulciano originates from Central Italy and produces large, almost seedless grape berries of an amazing dark colour.
  • Relatively low acidity (especially for an Italian varietal) and mild sweet tannins, ideally suited to the temperate Nelson climate.
  • Weather Conditions:  A wet and cool spring reduced our crop levels considerably.  Summer was marked by high rainfall and incredible canopy growth.   Luckily a stunning Indian Summer followed, bringing along good ripeness and fantastic flavour development.
