2011 Highfield Estate Pinot Noir Paua

Trying hard to be quite good but just lacks depth and intensity to get there. Some spice and pongy cherry with some slightly hard astringency to finish.

Classic lower end Marlborough PN. Sweet, some cherry, a little dusty, still full of life but much too simple and sweet for me.

It's definitely on the bigger, more syrupy side of pinot, but unlike some of its 14%+ california counterparts, it actually still tastes like pinot, which is cool. Much bigger in the mouth than on the nose. Syrupy cherry cola and raspberry nice acidity, nice spice, killer QPR for the $13 that bestwinesonline was selling it for

Really enjoyable after the nose settled down a bit. Simple red fruit with some white pepper on the back end.

Simple and fruity, medium-light weight, good balance. Really no earthy flavors that I love in Burgundy, but an enjoyable drink at a good price.

I am increasing the note - the wine has clearly improved - the wine is still very elegant and light - but the body has improved - and the balance is still very nice

Medium garnet, slightly browning. Nose and palate showing a good combination of development and sweet ripe fruit. It has developed pretty well but has probably peaked. Another enjoyable Marlborough pinot, perhaps just a touch astringent and acidic. (89 Good wine)

very fruity - impressive nose - we had the wine as a starter - where it was perfect - before the food - this is a very light and elegant wine that do not need food - perfect before dinner - fruitiness is impressive - but would like to se where it could take the wine

Quite a deep colour, nose of fumes and flowers. Mouth quite viscous, sweet and then the flowers and citrus kick in. More sweetness on the mid and then the finish shows caramel, fruit salad chews and an uptick of limey acidity. This is really rather good. Very medium but not a sweetie this works well with food.

A lot varietal flavors of gooseberry and blackcurrant buds, citrus and grapefruits. Mouth and nose in line. Long and nice finish on the blackcurrant. Simple and enjoyable.

Valerie put this one down after one sip. When i tasted it she was spot on. Way past drinking life, unfortunate as past bottles of this were very nice. Will have to look for current vintage

Unfortunately discontinued and replaced by Central Otago PN
Fortunately this meant I picked these up for ~£4 (normally £9.99)
good example of NZ pn, not too jammy or sweet.
well balanced, nice red summer fruit flavours and medium finish

Sweet strawberries on the nose before swirling. Cherries after swirl. Very gentle hints of vanilla and oak coming through. Nice balance and good mouthfeel. Slight hotness and fair finish. Quite enjoyable.
