"Elegant pinot noir with sweet cherry, fragrant plum, a hint of wood-smoke, violet and subtle spicy oak flavours. A high-energy wine with a suggestion of oyster-shell. Delicious now but better later. Drink 2021 to 2030.” - Bob Campbell MW

"Sweeter smelling than either the Gibbston or Waitaki bottlings-think scents of caramelized brown sugar backed by ripe black cherries-the 2019 Bannockburn Vineyard Pinot Noir is a round, velvety example of Pinot. Medium to full-bodied, with ample concentration, richly textural tannins and a long, plush finish, it's already approachable and should drink well for at least another 5-7 years.” - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate

"This delivers generous, ripe red-cherry and berry aromas with berry pastry, bergamot, fresh herbs and some nicely dialed-in oak spice. The palate has swirling, fleshy cherry and peach flavors, carried in nicely pitched tannins and delivered into a fresh, juicy and open-knit finish. Seamless.” - James Suckling

"The delicious 2019 vintage was hand-harvested, matured in French oak barriques (30 per cent new), and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Fragrant and full-bodied, it is notably refined and harmonious, with concentrated, vibrant, well-ripened cherry, plum and spice flavours, complex, savoury and supple. A very ‘complete' wine, it should be at its best 2023+.” - Michael Cooper

Tasting Note: "A bright garnet hue with a captivating fragrance that is both floral and savoury, Accentuated by dark red fruit and flinty aromas. Full of intrigue, this elegant Pinot is from a cooler, elevated site in Bannockburn- in a relatively cool growing season resulting in a taut and energetic wine that is intricately woven with layers of red and black fruit, cedar and mushroom. The flavours are both intriguing and complex with blackberry, raspberry, lilac, cardamom, wild thyme and a hint of iodine. The palate is fluid and silky with vibrant acidity that gives the wine length and memory. Enjoyable at release, this wine is apt for cellaring and will continue to evolve for 12+ years.” - Jen Parr
