A richly fruited style with black-cherry and berry aromas and flavors, cast in a gently muscular bed of grainy tannins that delivers a smooth, plush and luxuriant mouthfeel. Dark-plum finish. Needs time. Drink in 2021.

The 2017 Cornish Point Pinot Noir reveals a touch more oak than the regular Pinot Noir bottling, its red fruit notes taking on a bit of a glossy mocha sheen. It's not enough to detract from the quality of the underlying fruit, which showcases ripe cherries and raspberries. Medium to full-bodied, with a supremely silky, plush texture and a long finish, this wine should drink well for up to a decade from the vintage. - JC

The 2017 Cornish Point Pinot Noir encapsulates everything I love about New Zealand's take on this variety. It is unashamedly Kiwi in style, makes no bows towards Burgundy, yet delivers all the same attributes. The bouquet is wonderfully defined, displaying slightly darker fruit than the 2016, hints of blackberry and briar and a touch of white Chinese tea. The palate is beautifully balanced and extremely pure, offering pitch-perfect acidity and caressing, detailed dark plum and wild strawberry fruit on the finish. What a great Pinot Noir! -- Neal Martin

Plush and supple, with black licorice—scented black cherry and blueberry flavors and spice, vanilla and cherry cola accents smoothing out the edges. Appealing for the richness and depth. Drink now through 2028. 1,996... Plush and supple, with black licorice—scented black cherry and blueberry flavors and spice, vanilla and cherry cola accents smoothing out the edges.

A juicy expression with a nice plump core, but it's all within a finely structured frame. Very fine, almost chalky tannins give a slippery texture, while ripe cherry fruit and savoury spice with a touch of wood linger on... A juicy expression with a nice plump core, but it's all within a finely structured frame. Very fine, almost chalky tannins give a slippery texture, while ripe cherry fruit and savoury spice with a touch of wood linger on the medium-long finish.
