Light garnet with some ruby in colour with a medium intense nose.

One of the best Pinots for under $20, and can’t think of one that's better at the clearance price

Positives: Not a complex wine but full of flavour. This wine features cherry, strawberry, raspberry, light cranberry, rubbed sage & lilac. Medium to light body and with light tannins, good acidity & fairly long length.

Negatives: None

Drink now or over the next 2 years on its own or pair it with smoked oysters.

Tasted: 10 February 2014

A mild-mannered Marlborough pinot with attractive purity. Restrained cherry/berry fruit with a touch of cola on the nose and palate, this wine would be easily overpowered by strong flavored food, but it's a very pleasant sipper with those desirable cool climate pinot characteristics.

Cherry, raspberry, strawberry jam. Quite lush mouth feel, but some heat and bite on the finish. Good value, but nothing special.
