92/100 Decanter, Rebecca Gibb
"This has great colour and is beautifully fragrant. It's fresh, elegant yet ripe, with gorgeous violet, blackberry and raspberry coulis flavours. Lovely skin and seed tannins coat the palate like cocoa powder, and there's no edginess evident." Drink 2019 - 2030

The big name Pinot Noir you have never heard of...................

A single site Pinot Noir from Earnscleugh, Grasshopper Rock is on the south side of the Alexandra basin. The vineyard is on warm North facing slopes. 

All the good fruit go into this (probably because they only make one Pinot Noir). Clever winemakers, Pip Battley and Pete Bartle, are top of their game when it comes to making top Pinot Noirs, usually with a $60 price tag.

This has to be one of Otago's best value AND best quality offerings around.

Ripe cherry flavours, spices, powdery tannins and gorgeous lengthy finish. Delicious.
