This is the best Pinot Noir I encountered during my recent trip to New Zealand. Pure and concentrated fruity nose of cherry, plum and preserved plum, plenty of rose petals, supported by vanilla and spice brought by oak aging. The bright black fruit palate is refreshed with high acidity and savoury mouthfeel. A roasted sesame finish hints the use of good-quality oak. It's a Burgundy-like, young and sexy wine.
