5 Stars, 93 Points, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit "This is instantly appealing on the nose, showing sweet plum, cherry, violet and roasted nut characters with a lovely spicy overtone. The palate is succulent and flavoursome, while remaining elegant and poised. A wonderfully styled pinot, offering fabulous drinking."
The 2019 growing season started well in Marlborough with good soil moisture and warm, even springtime temperatures. Soil temperatures were cooler as a result of rainfall, before extended hot and dry weather over Summer resulted in advanced ripening, with low disease pressure and outstanding fruit quality.
Fruit for the Reserve Marlborough Pinot Noir is grown in the Southern Valley, Kaituna and Ward sub-regions, each site offering unique fruit flavour. After harvest, the Pinot Noir was cold soaked for five days and fermented in small batches in open-top fermenters. Each ferment was plunged three times a day to extract colour and tannins from the skins. The wine was left to macerate for five days before a gentle pressing off the skins. The wine underwent malolactic fermentation to soften the palate and was then aged in French oak barriques for 10 months, including 20% new oak.
