Tankersley Estate Pinot Noir 2015

Scorching hot Central Otago deal - don't miss this! Thanks to some sharp negotiating, we've secured some of the first, hotly sought after, 2015 stocks available on the market. 

Big, brooding, and packed with flavour, this is the top tier of NZ Pinots. It's ageing excellently so ready to be drunk right away, or stashed away if you're the patient type.

95/100, Wine Orbit "Wonderfully complex and engaging, this beautifully maturing pinot shows dark berry richness on the nose together with seductive notes of smoked wood, warm spice, thyme and dark mushroom. It’s concentrated and sophisticated on the palate with excellent depth and generosity, leading to a gracefully long silky finish."

93/100, The Real Review "Fermented with 30% whole bunches. Reasonably concentrated, flavoursome pinot noir with ripe plum, liquorice, five-spice and an interesting savoury and earthy dimension that I think might be the product of bottle age. A soft-textured, accessible wine that promises to develop greater complexity with further bottle age."

5 Stars, Michael Coopers Buyers Guide "The 2015 vintage (5*) was French oak-matured for a year. It has full, bright, moderately youthful colour, and a fragrant, spicy, slightly nutty bouquet. Mouthfilling and generous, it is a powerful red, with fresh, ripe plum and spice flavours, vigorous, savoury and structured."

Tankersley Estate NZ had their first proper vintage in 2013. The wines have been predominantly exported to Asia, however demand from local customers has increased, and we're thrilled to secure a piece of the pie.
