It is sweetly lifted on the nose displaying red cherry, raspberry, mushroom and floral characters with a touch of mixed spice complexity. The palate delivers elegant fruit weight and intensity together with silky texture and fine tannins. This is very friendly and approachable, and offers attractive fruit flavours with subtle savoury notes.

The 2015 vintage was grown in the Wairau Valley. Ruby hued, it is attractive young, with gentle, ripe cherry and spice flavours, showing a touch of savoury, nutty complexity, and a finely balanced smooth finish.

Light ruby-red colour with some depth, pale edged with some purple hues. This has a fresh, softly concentrated and elegantly presented nose with up-front aromas of red cherry and berry fruit along with a layer of red liquorice, herbs and lifted red florals. A trace of minerally reduction adds detail. Medium-bodied, the flavours of dark red cherry and berry fruit and light and tightly bound, entwined with subtle herb notes. This has lightly concentrated core and line that unfolds liquorice mineral and a little reduction. The mouthfeel features fine textures and crisp, refreshing acidity, and the wine carries to a lingering finish with fine grip and cherry-herb fruit notes. This is n elegant, tight and risp Pinot Noir with red cherry and herb notes with a touch of reduction.
