We always try our cleanskin samples blind so our judgment is not influenced by producer names or variety. This way we will know straight away if your wine possess the varietal characters that it should. It sounds straight forward but I can assure you this is not always the case but in this situation it was a no-brainer, one wiff of this wine and we knew we were tasting Pinot Noir, and in particular a good Pinot Noir that was unmistakeably from Martinborough. Soft Cherry and thyme with an earthy under-tone on the nose. Midweight palate with lively red fruit characters with some spice and a mineral, granite backbone, soft round tannins finish it off nicely. It’s a young wine that will improve even further with decanting or cellaring for up to three years.
