Wine tasting notes

Bright crimson in colour with classic Pinot Noir aromas of red/black cherry complemented with brooding earthy undertones. Hints of violets and lavender lift the rich black cherry spice palate which finished with fine velvety tannins.

Expert Reviews

Wine Front (2010)92 pts

Whenever I read the word ‘village’, I pretty much always think ‘idiot’. I’d have made a good one, that’s for sure, though I suspect I’d harbour aspirations of becoming a Grand Cru Idiot.Spice, red and black cherry and a light frame of cedar/vanilla oak with smoky highlights. It’s medium weight with gentle fine grained tannin, attractive fruit sweetness married to sappy complexity and a crisp finish of good length. At the price it’s a strong contender for the title of best affordable ‘go to’ Pinot Noir.

Huon Hooke (2010)90 pts

Light red colour with some brick-red tints and a faint purple rim. Shy, subdued aroma without much primary fruit. Savoury, meaty flavours and evidence of smart oak. Medium-bodied and leanish in profile. Very attractive savoury secondary characters, quite complex and interesting. Moderate length and light tannin grip.
