K&L Notes

92 points The Wine Front: "Bold perfume shows red cherry, raspberry, brooding sweet spice, new leather and brambles. Palate is quite sweet but let’s say fruity, has a nice sheath of fine tannins, a fresh, crisp finish. Good flush of Pinot here." (Mike Bennie)

    Red-fruited with pure cranberry notes, this 2016 Te Whare Ra Pinot Noir shows complexity, with a bright core of acidity and an earthy finish. One of my favorite Southern Hemisphere Direct Imports, TWR’s quality is unbelievable for the price – biodynamically farmed, handpicked, balanced, and most importantly: delicious.

    I have been a fan of TWR for many years and this latest Pinot Noir does not disappoint. It is a bit lighter in style (which is good for me!) with bright red fruits and cranberry notes. On the palate, sour cherry and cranberry fruit, with a long, clean finish. Simply put, just delicious! Super versatile!

    The nose if full of wet stone, earth and stem with hints of spicy fruit coming in behind. On the palate the wine shows a medium structure and is a bit tart, but eventually opens and shows some weight. A long coiled finish shows lots of savory flavors.

    This is one of the bigger hitters from our Direct Import NZ Pinot Noir portfolio. Always handpicked, organic, and estate owned fruit, the result is a beautiful profile of strawberry compote and cherries that starts subtle and builds towards a long, focused finish on the back end. Power, complexity and elegance, this has it all!

    The dedication to their vineyards, the biodynamic farming practices, and the light hand the Flowerday's use in the winery is on full display in this graceful, refined, pure expression of Pinot Noir from Marlborough. We at K&L have long considered TWR to be amongst the top producers in New Zealand and it seems the customers and critics agree, with these wines selling out very quickly after they come off the boat. Because this fruit is sourced from multiple sites as well as clones, it carries a great depth of flavor and intricate layers. Red and black fruits shine here, with a prominent dose of herb and crushed earth. The medium-body, fine tannin, and delicate fruit all meld seemlessly together to create a Pinot of unparalleled quality.
    Top Value!
