Ata Rangi (Martinborough) 2019 Crimson Pinot Noir

93 POINTS - Cameron Douglas MS
"Youthful, vibrant, fresh and lively bouquet with aromas of cherries and plums, dried herbs and silty soil layers, a fine lees and wood spice aromatics. Overall - vibrant, youthful and high energy. On the palate - dry, youthful, plenty of texture from tannin and acidity, bright young red fruit flavours contrast the texture and a vibrant youthful mouthfeel overall. Best drinking from 2022 through 2028+."

Winery note
"20 years ago we named this special Pinot Noir “Crimson” in support of Project Crimson, the charitable trust working to replant and preserve native red-flowering pōhutukawa and rātā trees throughout New Zealand.

Crimson is our selection of parcels from younger Pinot Noir vines from our various vineyards on the Martinborough Terrace. In their youth, vines tend to be more fruit expressive, gaining more complexity around 15-20 years.

This vintage has the intensity and structure that we love from Martinborough – complex notes of rose petal, blood orange, sandalwood, tamarind and toasted rice entice aromatically while the flavours of cranberry, cinnamon and bergamot tea align with the soft savoury notes of tobacco to taste. This structure makes for a beautifully food-friendly Pinot Noir."

Carrick (Central Otago) 2017 Excelsior Pinot Noir

94 Points Excellent - Cameron Douglas
"Integrating and harmonising well with aromas of complexity and charm, pinosity, fruit and layers of French oak and barrel toast. Flavours of red berries and cherry, baking spices of clove and vanilla and toasty barrel flavours of smoke and new wood. An abundance of tannins adds a chalk and fine dusty texture, medium acidity refreshes the palate, but also carries the flavours of fruit and a fine savoury complexity throughout the palate. Lengthy dry finish, balanced and well made. Best drinking from late 2021 through 2027+."

Only 300 cases made in the best years, this is an intensely rich wine that will cellar until at least 2020 and drinking will give rewarding ongoing pleasure.

Named for the coal seam which was mined during the goldrush and lies beneath the Carrick Vineyards thier finest expression of Pinot Noir. The wine is aged in barrel for 18 months, then bottled without fining. It is contemplative, earthy, and powerful.

The Carrick Bannockburn Pinot Noir is known for its structure and its ability to age well over a long period of time.
Winery description
"The Carrick Bannockburn Pinot Noir is known for its structure and its ability to age well over a long period of time. The 2018 growing season had the hottest growing season on record, with rain just before harvest, it was incredibly unusual and picking began two weeks earlier than normal. The fruit came in looked good and the resulting wines are generous and impressive. This wine is an integral part of what we do and a wine that we feel represents the strong connection we have with our land. The fruit comes from a parcel of vines which are entirely grown on their own roots and are the oldest vines we have on the property. Now 25 years old."

Classic Central Otago Pinot Noir, with good structure, earthy tones alongside red fruit and great balance. Classic, well-balanced, generous.

Doctors Flat (Otago) 2018 Pinot Noir

94 Points Rated Excellent - Cameron Douglas
Complex, savoury, true to region and variety with aromas of dark berries, plum and dried herb with a thyme and stony soils aromas, dark cherry and a touch of dried raspberry. Enticing with intrigue and focus on variety and site. Delicious on the palate with flavours that mirror the bouquet, firm-ish tannins and great acid line with a delicious savoury complexity. An excellent example capturing the variety, a sense of place and wonderful pinosity. Best drinking from late 2021 through 2027+.

Yvonne Lorkin

Bannockburn Pinot at its best! Doctors Flat Pinot Noir is a stunner. Steve Davies made wine for Carrick and Akarua before developing his own vineyard, This wine also made it on to the NZ Fine Wine List in 2017. This vineyard also supplies Valli Wine for their Bannockurn wine.

Subtly powerful and refined in the glass, its darkish fruit is finely packed around a supple core of depth, freshness and mineral layering. A big leap over other Central Pinot at the price, drink this now or cellar it a good while.

This shows pure, vivid red cherry and berry fruit. Finesse and elegance are the hallmarks, with purity, a lightness of body and a spine of grippy tannins. Lovely elegant style.” (Jamie Goode, UK)

Ghost Hawk (Martinborough) 2018 Pinot Noir

Joelle Thomson - Wine writer, author and wine adviser,
"Martinborough Pinot Noir is on a roll and wines such as this new release from a well known producer shows why. A portion of whole bunch fermentation adds structure and power, making an impressive framework to enhance the delicate fruit flavours of red cherries, red plums and notes of almond, walnut and spice. The wine spent 15 months maturing in French oak barrels, which is longer than the traditional 11 to 12 months that the majority of New Zealand Pinots spend aging in barrel, pre release. This further enhances the feeling of smooth palate texture and the complex spicy, earthy flavours that define top quality Pinot Noirs from Martinborough. This wine drinks well now and will reward further cellaring for five to six years. Joelle Thomson, wine writer, author and wine adviser, 15 November 2021"

This is such a good pinot noir buy which sells for a lot more under its original label.

Bottled for us by a top Martinborough producer - we can't tell you who. This comes from a top site from one of the original Martinborough growers. The vines on this site are low yielding of high quality fruit and the oldest are up to 30 odd years old. This is classy stuff, low vigour, low cropping vineyard, whole bunch press, hand plunged and with 15 mnths in French oak.

Classic Martinborough style pinot. Savoury, spicy, ripe red cherry - an absolute winner.

Grasshopper Rock (Otago) 2018 Pinot Noir

Listed in Air NZ Fine Wines of New Zealand 2019

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.

Henri Cauvard (France) 2016 Volnay

Volnay, admired for its delicacy and sappy style. Always been thought of as the most feminine of Bourgogne wines. Though there are vigorous and muscular versions, it truly does stand out among the red wines of the Côte de Beaune. The colour varies from bright ruby to a light garnet.

Aromas are of violet, gooseberry, cherry, and spices. Gamey notes and cooked prune. It has an immediate appeal which, added to a slight natural precocity, means it can be fully open while still relatively young. Fresh, the finish is warm.

Konrad (Marlborough) 2020 Pinot Noir

5 Stars, 94 Points -  Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Konrad Hengstler began planting vines in Marlborough in 1996, it didn’t take him long to shake hands with the Giesen brothers. Their shared commitment to quality shaped their partnerships across decades, ultimately leading Konrad to pass the baton on his retirement. The Giesen brothers continue Konrad Wines’ legacy, distributing quality wines around the world.

Deep crimson in colour, the nose shows profound ripe fruit characters, exotic earthy spice notes and a hint of toasty oak. In the mouth the wine is firm up front, showing classic black cherry and damson plum fruit with lovely density and poise. The tannins are ripe and powdery giving an impression of mocha and liquorice.Structural acidity gives the wine great length of flavour, allowing the fruit to run its full course through the palate.

Great value and well made Pinot Noir, excellent when enjoyed with soft cheeses, or try it with spring lamb.

18.5+/20 points - Candice Chow
91 points and Silver Medal  -  IWSC 2020

The 2019 Holly South Series Pinot Noir ripples with elegance and finesse reflecting the warm growing season experienced throughout the Wairarapa region. Bold aromatic expressions of wild flower, red berries, spice and herb give way to a fresh palate with generous length and graceful oak.

In the winery, the different batches of fruit were processed separately so that the individual characters could be retained. Further complexity was added by incorporating techniques such as plunging and pumping over to ensure optimum flavour extraction from the skins. Prior to fermentation the grapes were left to cold soak for 3 days. Different yeast combinations were used, along with wild yeasts, to add even more depth of flavour. The different batches were then left on skins for 21 days before being pressed off into barrel. This wine also incorporated some whole cluster fermentation, which has lifted the aromatic profile with floral and spice notes. Once in barrel, the wine was aged for 12 months in oak (23% new) before the final blend was put together
