Winemaker Notes

Appealing at once, the nose of our Pinot Noir 2012 is ripe with plum, aromatic spice and red florals. The palate is focused with a savory architecture; bittersweet chocolate, dark fruit and spice play with leather and hints of earthiness. Chalky tannins linger on a persistent finish.

Pair the 2012 Pinot Noir with soy glazed bbq pork ribs and confit of duck leg.

Critical Acclaim

All Vintages
D 96
Decanter
Intense, sumptuous and wonderfully perfumed with dark plum, black cherry, a hint of violets and an appealing gamey, savoury palate. Long and complex, hinting at its potential. The texture is seductively silky, blanketing a spine of fine tannins.
JS 93
James Suckling
A pinot noir that is subtle and complex with dried strawberry, cedar, nut and light meat character. Full to medium body with hints of chocolate, wet earth and mushroom. Such balance and finesse here. Screw cap.
W&S 91
Wine & Spirits
Its black cherry depths of flavor feel fattened up by the tannins, which carry hints of white tea along with a touch of caramel richness. With the clean lines of a Marlborough pinot, this is targeted at grilled salmon or apricot glazed roast pork.
WS 90
Wine Spectator
Elegant, with pure, plush raspberry coulis and cherry flavors at the core, gaining momentum as the layers of clove, pine, lavender and red licorice come in. Exhibits power on the finish. Drink now through 2028.
WW 90
Wilfred Wong of Wine.com
Brooding with dark fruits, this Pinot Noir explores exciting aromas and flavors that I am certainly not use to but am liking. The firm 2012 Cloudy Bay comes up with ripe strawberries and blackberries; some plum and dried fruit show up as well. A really fined effort that would make a slow roasted pork tenderloin very happy.
