A stunning bulk-discount price on this trophy-winning Pinot. Wild Earth have been getting Pinot awards for years, but their 2016 captured the Platinum Best in show at the Decanter Asia wine Awards with the judges scoring it a 97/100. (Also 94/100 from Bob Campbell and 95/100 from Wine Orbit Magazine). With all the lush and juicy-fruited satisfaction of the best Central Pinot -- but also a superb textural refinement and balance -- this is one hell of a wine for this low price.

What The Critics Say

97/100 and Platinum Best in Show, Decanter Asia Wine Awards

"This 2016 Central Otago Pinot Noir is a clear, deep red-black in colour. Enticing cherry and cherry blossom combine with a haunting aromatic sweetness and a touch of cream; there's fresh mixed spice, too, to lend complexity to the mix. On the palate, this is an almost juicy Pinot with more of the cherry fruit promised by the wine's aromas. There is fine-grained tannin here too, though, and the fruit has a concentration and finesse to it which keeps drawing you back to the glass. It's lively to the last, thanks to its almost sweetly ripe acidity. Charming, head-turning Pinot from the promising Bannockburn sector of Central Otago". (The Best in Show is the ultimate accolade at the Decanter Asia Wine Awards. In a separate tasting, the vice-chairs select the ‘Best in Show’ from the Platinum winners)

94/100 Bob Campbell MW

"Intensely fruity single vineyard pinot noir from the Bannockburn subregion of Central Otago. Strong plum, dark cherry, spice, anise, thyme and nutty oak flavours. Power and purity with plenty of punch. 27/7/201." Drink 2018 - 2023

95/100 Wine Orbit, Sam Kim

"A gorgeously styled pinot, the inviting bouquet shows dark cherry, plum, violet, toasted almond and olive characters, followed by a succulent palate that is plump and rounded. It is elegant and fabulously poised, delivering fruit richness as well as refinement, wonderfully framed by fine, polished tannins"
