From a parcel of the oldest vines on the Rippon property with coarse schist gravels, this is a complex and strikingly fragrant pinot noir with aromas of blueberry, blood orange, orange peel, violet, crushed rock, moist earth, pepper and fresh-ground brown spices. The palate has a strikingly vivid and intense core of blueberry and dark-cherry flavors. So vivid, ultra pure and enigmatic, this is restrained yet powerful. The tannins shine bright on a lustrous and deep-reaching finish. Stunning.
Named after Rippon’s co-founder, Rolfe ‘Tink’ Mills, this age worthy Central Otago wine is based on the oldest vines at Lake Wanaka. Deeply, coloured, it is mouth filling and savoury, with bottomless depth of ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, hints of blackcurrants and liquorice and fairly firm tannins. A riveting red.
