  • The entry-level Pinot Noir of Arterberry Maresh, made with fruit sourced from all their vineyards in Dundee Hills. 12,8% alcohol. Total production 550 cases.

    Luminous, quite translucent ruby-red color. Somewhat restrained nose with aromas of brambly raspberries and fresh red plums, some raw meat tones, a little bit of darker-toned blackberry-driven fruit, light smoky tones, a hint of savory wood spice and perhaps a touch of skunky reduction that blows off quickly. The wine is dry, fresh and clean on the palate with a medium body and bright, fresh flavors of brambly black raspberries, some stony mineral tones, a little bit of savory wood spice, light umami notes of raw meat, a hint of ripe cranberry and a touch of fresh, tart red plum. Nice, high acidity and slightly grippy medium-minus tannins. The finish is dry, clean and crunchy with a long aftertaste of tart cranberries and stony minerality, some meaty tones, a little bit of ferrous blood, light woody notes of savory oak spice, a hint of black raspberry and a touch of peppery spice.

    A wonderfully fresh, clean and vibrant Pinot Noir with beautiful clarity and intensity of fruit. This is dry, focused and high in acidity without any obvious oak tones - exactly as I want my Pinot! The overall feel is still very youthful, so I can imagine this wine will continue to improve for years more, but it is drinking remarkably well right now, so additional cellaring is not necessary. While the Arterberry Maresh Old Vines Pinot 2016 - that was tasted alongside - came across as more impressive, it was also noticeably closed and not really open for business the same way as this wine was. Although this is just the early-drinking entry-level cuvée of the winery, this wine was one of my favorites of the evening. A terrific Pinot Noir and solid value at 31,50€.

  • Not too much happening on the nose. Great clarity and colour though. Tangy cherry fruit, a bit of sweet vanilla and clove spice, blood orange, the acid is really nicely balanced, not complicated but juicy and great qpr

  • Similarly dark red fruited as the ‘15, but a full one and a bit percentage less abv this shows excellent balance. Easy to drink, not huge complexity but enough interest to make this a lovely wine and fantastic vfm. ***

  • Very tight and basic in its first 2hours. All though this is an entry level pinot would wait 2 to 3 years before opening my remaining bottles.
