Another single vineyard Pinot, this one from parcels in the Mason Vineyard in the Parkburn sub-region of Central Otago, which is part of the Cromwell Basin mostly planted with the famous Abel clone. There is a deeper red colour to be found here. Youthful spices, red fruits, raspberries, game notes, an aroma reminiscent of grabbing a handful of warm earth, and dry herbs which all weave together for this lovely, complex wine. This is a little more mainstream in style than a wine such as ‘The Tiger’ – but both will have their fans. There is good acidity and impressive length, with appealing silky tannins. The wine is fresh and vibrant. A pleasing sour cherry note emerges towards the finish. A Pinot with a good future.
