Richly scented Pinot Noir with plum, cherry and mineral flavours, together with a seasoning of spice and subtle herbal characters. A bright, high energy wine that's a pleasure to drink now but has the potential to develop well.
Youthful, yet impressively harmonious and complex, the wine offers lifted aromas of dark cherry, raspberry, game and clove with hints of thyme and floral notes. The palate delivers lovely weight and roundness, beautifully complemented by silky texture and pristine fruit flavours as well as subtle savoury complexity, finishing long and satisfying. A delectable offering showing charm and delight.
Moderately deep, cerise-ruby red with youthful purple hues. This is ripe, up-front and juicy with sweet, aromatic fruits, with dark raspberries and cherries and plum notes. This is easy to access and is inviting with its sweetness. Beautifully and fully ripe on palate, the fruit is sweet and juicy, with raspberries and plums. The fruit is underlined by fine tannin extraction providing noticeable structure and grip. The primary fruit as I saw when last tasted is giving way to the extract. The acidity lends freshness and vibrancy still. Hand-picked fruit, clones 5, 10/5, Abel and Dijon clones, vines 5-20 y.o., destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented with a high proportion of whole berries to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 20% new French oak.
A very handy edition of Crimson Pinot Noir in 2016, this has a suave and grown-up feel to it. Innately complex and layered aromas, flavors and textures. This wine is packed with ripe red cherry and poached red plum fruits as well as inherently spicy, perfumed and earthy attributes. The way in which it rolls out on the palate is just superb; a silky, succulent and seductive red.
The 2016 Crimson Martinborough Pinot Noir has an elegant bouquet with raspberry, cranberry and sous-bois aromas that are quite Old World in style. The palate is well balanced, displaying fine grip and a slightly grainy texture, but there is a sense of tension here. It needs a little more finesse towards the finish but otherwise this should give up to five years of drinking enjoyment. (NM)
