An absolute coup from a new Central Otago label! This high-scoring Pinot is dark and penetrating, yet glossy and stylish. An exceptional level of succulence and depth is packed in by ex-Peregrine winemaker Pete Bartle. As strident dark fruits plunge about in themes of tar and earthy spice, interesting herbal and mineral layers are wrapped up in this dynamic and charismatic red. A powerful yet sleek style, this is everything $50 plus Central drinkers usually hope for -- for under $40 it is headed straight to the front of the market. Unstoppable value!

What The Critics Say

Winemaker notes on current 2018 vintage

"Deep purple with purple hues. The nose is very expressive with fragrant raspberry, blackberry, violet, spice, caramel, chocolate and mushroom. The palate is rich and inviting with sweet black cherry, plum, chocolate, clove, coffee and oak char. Full bodied and concentrated with an elegant silky fine texture. A long red berry finish that tapers to a hint of black olive."

95/100 Bob Campbell MW (2017 vintage)

"Flagship red made from hand-picked, 100% destemmed grapes from a single vineyard in Queensberry. Dense, deep and concentrated pinot noir with dark-fleshed plum, black cherry, violet and a smattering of fresh herb flavours. Good now but should develop well 25/11/2018." Drink 2018 - 2024

95/100 Cameron Douglas Master Sommelier (2017 vintega)

"Beguiling and quite intense as the bouquet captivates the senses. Dark cherry, ripe red plum, savoury and gently spicy with aromas of undergrowth and earthy minerality. Complex and dry on the palate with flavours that reflect the nose with plums and black cherry, savoury spices and abundant fine tannins. Medium+ acidity, complex and lengthy finish. A delight to taste and enjoy - think I’ll have a glass!" Drink 2018 - 2026
