Expert Reviews

92 pts - Angus Hughson (The Wine Pilot)

Central – the home to New Zealand’s biggest, boldest and most muscular Pinot Noirs. It’s the Barossa Valley of New Zealand Pinot country thanks to its dry, harsh climate, with the Scott Base vineyard right in the heart of Central near the little town of Cromwell. This is a typically dense Central Otago Pinot Noir style – earthy mushroom and wild thyme aromas sit over lush rhubarb and dark cherry fruits. It’s powerful and rich with generous fruit well matched by some quality oak. Lots of complexity too but just needs a couple of years to settle into the groove, although still a great drink now.

Winery Tasting Notes

Classic Central Otago aromatics of ripe cherries, raspberries and wild thyme. The palate is full of primary fruits and finishes with smooth tannins and oak sweetness. Ideal with pâtés and salami, this wine matches beautifully with beef and lamb dishes, and try also pairing with game. Don’t be afraid to serve with a dark chocolate mousse either. Drink now or cellar for up to 5 years.

Vegan friendly.
