    April 2, 2016 - Superb - probably my favourite Pinot in NZ - pity the property has been sold and so no more Craggy Range Calvert. Earthy, mature berries, very smooth.

    January 8, 2016 - Superb Central Otago Pinot

    December 28, 2015 - I found this pretty good with a grilled Tuna salad nicoise after a 3 hour decant. Nice sweet/savoury balance, tad dry on the finish. A silkier texture in a few more years would improve it but good stuff from what I understand to be a tough year.

    November 9, 2015 - Looks dense but tannins, even when given hours to soften, didn't really yield. Wine just became dry with more savoury than ripe fruit flavours. Maybe closed. Plenty of substance and enough acidity but currently little aroma or enjoyement. How and when will this come around? No idea, but I don't have any intention to touch until at least 2020. Judgement reserved, but I'm cautiously optimistic. A very conservative 91pts for now, could easily become 2pts more with time.
