Bright Crimson colour. Red cherry and strawberry jump out the glass, along with a complexing herbal edge. The palate has abundant red and blue fruit, along with violet florals and a gentle touch of spice. The tannins have a pleasing sappy texture that provides a counterpoint to the bright fruit. 2020 was the coolest vintage in 15 years in Central Otago, and this wine shows that through the red fruit and medium bodied palate. It will age well for the next 7-10 years.

Beautifully composed and styled, the fragrant bouquet shows spiced cherry, dark mushroom, cedar, black tea and floral characters. The palate is concentrated and elegantly weighted, displaying gorgeous silky mouthfeel and plush texture, wonderfully complemented by plenty of polished tannins. It is complex and engaging, and offers fabulous drinking.

Light pale straw. Rich, exotic beguiling nose, with lychee and jasmine florals over ripe, juicy pear. Shows off the cooler vintage with aromatic intensity, and this is followed on the palate, with fantastic weight and depth of flavour. Baked pear and spice, with a creamy textural and dry finish. This is a Pinot Gris that will benefit from up to 5 years of ageing.

Richly fruited and beautifully styled, this complex pinot gris displays yellow stone fruit, candied apple, lemon peel and subtle spice aromas on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate that is succulent and plush. The wine offers silky texture and richness, brilliantly supported by perfectly pitched acidity. Powerful and refined at the same time. Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
