I'm not sure whether their secret is relatively old vines or low crop yields perhaps both but this wine delivers consistently concentrated and powerful wine every year. It's a dense almost chewy Pinot Noir with an appealing rustic note strong plum and dark cherry fruit and aromatic spicy oak that is both strong and appropriate.

Fermented with 10% whole bunches and matured in 30% new French oak the intellectual 2006 Pinot Noir has a very natural nose less fruit-driven than expected with more woodland tertiary scents. Very well-balanced on the palate slightly grainy tannins dark fruit but not the usual black cherry. This has damson and mulberries to the fore again that beguiling sense of earthiness. Introverted on the very natural elegant dry finish. Superb.

Bright red with ruby highlights. Initially reticent nose opens to reveal pure vibrant scents of raspberry rose petal minerals white pepper and sandalwood; ultimately quite reminiscent of a very good Chambolle. Wonderfully... Bright red with ruby highlights. Initially reticent nose opens to reveal pure vibrant scents of raspberry rose petal minerals white pepper and sandalwood; ultimately quite reminiscent of a very good Chambolle. Wonderfully suave on entry then silky and sappy in the middle but light on its feet with a lovely subtle intensity to the laid-back flavors of raspberry flowers and spices. A very sophisticated and complex New Zealand pinot with a captivating juicy quality and terrific cut. The tannins are fine-grained and firm and the long dry finish reveals excellent spine.
