Very dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim, and youthful in appearance. The nose is full with robust and vigorous aromas of rich, ripe, dark-red and blackberry fruit with black cherries and layers of savoury dark herbs, whole cluster stalk detail, in an amalgam with violet florals. Complexing earth and balsamic nuances add to the aromatic array. Medium-full bodied, lusciously rich and succulent flavours of ripe, dark red berry and blackberry fruit are intermixed with complex layers of spices, dark red florals, oak cedar, whole bunch stalk and herbal detail, along with balsamic, earth and nutty oak elements. The flavours are mouthfilling and near robust, the sweetness and vibrancy balanced by fine-grained, but significant structure and grip, and bright acidity. The flavours continue to blossom as the wine leads to a powerful, textured, lingering finish. This is a very rich and succulent, multi-faceted black-fruited Pinot Noir with layers of complexing flavours, and plenty of structure and dimension.
Perhaps the most accessible of all the 2014 single vineyard Escarpment pinot noirs with plum and berry flavours, plus a strong influence of chocolate and vanilla oak character. The wine exhibits real power, showing considerable length. A moderately firm structure with the potential to cellar well.
Medium ruby colored, the 2014 Te Rehua Pinot Noir displays a gorgeous core of cherries, pomegranate and forest floor with wild thyme and lavender hints. Crisp, firm and chewy in the mouth, it offers elegant fruit with great intensity, going savory/earthy in the long finish.
Robust and intense, with plenty of fresh earth notes, muscular tannins and smoky tea, rosemary and roasted plum flavors. Complex and generous on the finish, ending harmoniously. Drink now through 2026. 350 cases made.
Bright, dark red-ruby. Distinctly dark aromas of black raspberry, black cherry, anise, licorice, black pepper and black tea. Silky and enveloping; a very spicy, darker style of Pinot but with a wonderfully fine-grained, seamless texture. Plenty of fruit here, complicated by underlying salinity. Finishes with very suave, building tannins and sneaky length.
