16.5/20 Raymond Chan
"The palate has good energy and liveliness, with fresh acidity, the wine flowing along a modestly extracted palate line with light tannins. The wine carries to a light, fresh, fruity and clean finish. This is a light, accessible and uncomplicated Pinot Noir with bright fruit, a fresh mouthfeel and supple grip" Raymond Chan
"It is nicely fragrant on the nose showing red cherry, cranberry, floral and black olive characters with hints of toasted nut and gamey notes. The palate is ripe and bright, and displays appealing fruit flavours with fine texture, well structured by polished tannins. The wine is elegant and rounded, and offers lovely drinking. At its best: now to 2019." Sam Kim - Wine Orbit
Made by top Nelson producer Sea Level Wines, this is a beautiful delicate, elegant style of Pinot Noir. It has a supple, silky texture with an abundance of bright, red fruits. 12 months oak aged, the oak is well integrated to support this fruit and aid the long finish. Well worth it at this substantial discount from the RRP.
