Sacred Hill Reserve Pinot Noir 2020

This wine has a deep ruby hue and offers aromas of dark cherry, sage, shitake mushroom and black forest chocolate. Notes of nutmeg, violets and forest floor also shine through.  The succulent palate has a rich entry which is sustained throughout and finishes with velvety tannins.

91 Points, Sam Kim, Wine Orbit "Beautifully ripe and fragrant, the wine shows dark plum, sweet cherry, olive, dark mushroom and almond characters. It’s equally charming on the palate with lovely weight and supple mouthfeel, well supported by silky texture and polished tannins, offering excellent drinking. At its best: now to 2024."

Marlborough experienced a classic cool climate growing season leading into the 2020 harvest. A mild winter merged gently into an early spring, followed by a cooler start to summer. Our Pinot Noir lapped up the sunshine in the second half of the summer, which hit record temperatures, resulting in superb ripening conditions. Our diverse range of vineyards spread across several microclimates, ensured that we harvested each parcel of fruit at their best expression, with some great intensity seen in all varietals.
