K&L Notes

Winemaker's Notes: "We have about a dozen different clones of pinot noir growing intermingled throughout our various blocks. The vines, many of which are nearly 30 years old and on their own roots, grow on a series of north facing, gradually descending terraces. The upfront aromas and flavours suggest raspberry, pomegranate, black cherry, purple plum, chocolate and spice. These overlie savoury hints of barbecued meats, grilled mushrooms and black olive tapenade. It is richly textured and mouth filling with powerful but velvety tannins that flow evenly through the palate, helping to draw out the lingering aftertaste." 94 points Wine Front: Invariably lead in with something about Pegasus Bay being one of NZ’s leading Pinot Noir producers. No change here. Spicy, savoury and fruity at once. Dark cherries, black olives in herbs, cold meats, cola - it’s all going on. Medium bodied, black olive and spiced cherries, meaty and reductive, yet perfumed with dried roses, runs clean acidity, fleshy grainy tannin, and a long savoury blood plum aftertaste. It’s a wine of undeniable personality and charisma, as ever."
