    Pinot Noir from the McCreanor vineyard famous for its deep, gravely subsoil; Te Rehua is a fruit forward wine that experienced 12 days of punch down and then matured gracefully in only 30% new French oak. Black cherries and an undercurrent of rocky mineral are braced with firm, mature tannins that helps the wine find its balanced expression in a long unctuous finish.

    The nose has intense but cool red fruits that are barely framed by a fine but faint cocoa dust and subtle oak spice note. With a little time a diffused savory herbal note appears behind the fruit. It is a fairly big Pinot with richness and great mid-palate texture. The fruit commands your attention, it puts the oak and tannin in their place, on the periphery. It is not a "fruity" wine but the fruit has intensity. A dry lingering finish where the oak spice and savory elements build on the finish. This is a very impressive Pinot.
