Expert Reviews

"A dense yet elegant wine with an array of fruit flavours including dark cherry, plum and a suggestion of violet. Perfectly balanced and beautifully structured, it has a lingering finish. An impressive pinot that surely ranks as one of the regions best." - Bob Campbell MW, Qantas Inflight Guide to Wine - 5th Edition, May 2009

5 Stars and Best Wine of 2008 - "Richly coloured, with a fragrant, slightly earthy and savoury bouquet. Ripe, sweet-fruit flavours showing excellent density, strongly seasoned with oak. Weighty, rich, slightly chewy wine, set to age well." - Michael Cooper, Winestate Annual 2009, Jan 2009

"Still relatively substantial and firmly structured, this pinot is rich and plummy, with plenty of depth and a faint spice-aniseed overtone." - Lester Jesberg, Winewise, July 2009

Winery Tasting Notes

Our philosophy is to produce a distinctive Marlborough Pinot Noir and the 2006 is no exception.

A wonderful core of ripe dark smokey plum, and dense rich brambly forest fruits command the aromatics, the tannins are silky, and acid balance sublime, adding structure and weight to the leather spice, cocoa notes. A hallmark of Wither Hills Pinot Noir is the purity of fruit, youthful bright elegant fl avours and subtle power. This is a classic!
