Community Tasting Notes 3

    October 9, 2016 - Pinotpalooza (Carriageworks, Redfern): Medium minus intensity aromas of mud, black fruits and spice…juicy, dense black fruit married to slight chalky tannic grip. Considerably bigger than the Taylors Pass but does have inherent balance. Okay

    September 20, 2015 - Blind Tasting - New Zealand Pinot Noir (St Johns, Auckland): clear medium ruby. nose shows mix of red and dark cherry. bright acidity, cola, liquorice, satin silky tannins. medium bodied, savoury finish with oak touching.

    it's the 2nd darkest one in the flight. showing straight and solid acidity, with some elegance and complexity. reflecting cool climate style. still developing, worth your time to wait more integration. also, compare to 2009, 2012 has less richness and density.

    Alc 13.5%, TA 5.43 g/L, pH 3.58; 100% destemmed; 17 months, Fine French, 30% new.

    Ap: 5/5; Ar: 12/15; Palate: 16/20; overall: 5+3/10
    TOTAL: 91/100

    December 18, 2014 - Air New Zealand Wine Taste and Dreamliner Experience (Air NZ Headquarter, Auckland City): ruby, medium+ depth. nose shows red and dark berries, subtle spices. fruity flavour leading palate, subtle violet, good concentration and weight, medium+ body, silky tannins, fresh acidity, oak touching, savoury finish with vanilla and oak spicy. upright and balanced Pinot Noir, more concentration than average Marlborough, show some elegance.

    Easter Show 2014 - Gold, Cuisine 5 stars, WS 90, Marlborough Wine Show 2014 - Gold, AirNZ 2014 - Trophy, Reserve Wine of Show.

    Ap: 4/5; Ar: 13/15; Palate: 17/20; overall: 5+3/10
