Raymond Chan

14TH JUNE 2017

Even, light ruby-red colour with a little purple, paler edged. This has an elegantly concentrated, firm and intense nose with a core of dark raspberry fruit unfolding suggestions of dark herbs and liquorice, dark-red florals and raspberry liqueur. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a deeply concentrated core of ripe, dark-red berry and cherry fruit along with notes of raspberry liqueur, dark herbs and nuances of liquorice. Raspberry liqueur notes emerge to add to the richness. The fruit is supported by fine-grained tannin extraction providing a positive line, with integrated acidity lending harmony. The wine carries to a long, lingering finish of dark raspberry fruit. This is a rich and well-concentrated Pinot Noir with flavours of dark raspberries and raspberry liqueur on a positive, fine-textured palate.

18.5/20

Winery Profile

Brand Profile Image

Yealands Estate is based in the Awatere Valley to the south east of Marlborough's Wairau Plains. Their vineyard stretches from the foothills of the Seaward Kaikoura ranges to the bluffs overlooking Cook Strait on the east coast of Marlborough.

Back when Marlborough's wine industry started to gather momentum in the Awatere everyone thought the steep contours of these foothills were too challenging for viticulture. Everyone that is except Peter Yealand. He recognised that with careful development and clever thinking this terroir would produce great wine. In 2002 he began consolidating his vineyards here, extending his existing interests on the Wairau Plains with the development of some 950 hectares of rolling Awatere country which he terraced into vineyard blocks to create New Zealand's single largest privately-owned vineyard.
