The Crater Rim Waipara Valley Pinot Noir 2012

With grapes sourced from The Crater Rim's estate vineyard known for its clay over limestone soil this Pinot Noir displays persistent aromatics with notes of red and black cherries, old fashioned roses, savoury, spice and hints of game. The palate has an attack with bright red and black fruit flavours. Fine, structured tannins adds texture complimented by mineral acidity on the finish.

Sam Kim 5 STARS - 94/100: 'Richly fruited and seductively complex, the bouquet shows dark berry, game, truffle, cedar and dried herb characters. It is beautifully weighted on the palate, and offers excellent harmony and balance, together with layers of fine texture and rich savoury flavours. Superbly matured and terrific drinking.
