94 Points - Wine Orbit, Sam Kim, 2020

Te Kairanga is one of the earliest producers of wine in Martinborough. Established in 1984 on land originally owned by the founding father of Martinborough, John Martin.  The modern enterprise consists of 250 acres of sustainably-farmed vineyards planted on ancient riverbeds

Under the direction of Chief Winemaker, John Kavanagh, our winemaking philosophy places a premium on the character of each vineyard. The grapes are harvested block by block, destemmed and vinified individually with punch-downs and gentle pressing to ensure full extraction without sacrificing elegance. Balanced oak treatment and minimal fining and filtration help preserve both varietal character and the inimitable personality of the terroir.

Deep crimson in colour with purple hues, this Pinot Noir leads with seductive wild berry cherry, plum fruit and forest bramble. A fine savoury spice undertone on the nose leads to a rich depth of flavour with berry fruit, spice and subtle oak. The palate is ripe, full and satisfying making it the perfect match for herb crusted lamb rack.
