PINOT NOIR 6pk
Six bottle pack contains one bottle each of the following recently released wines:
"Mid, nice Pinot red, fine lightly spicy red fruits nose, lovely clarity and vivacity, fine almost succulent ripeness on the palate, mouth-watering both in flavour and lifted acidity, very appealing now with vibrant, elegant vigour for a good future to 2022. 17.25/91. (Volnay)." Steven Spurrier
“Pale to medium ruby colored, the 2013 Rachel Pinot Noir has an earthy nose of loam, moss-covered bark and garrigue with a core of raspberry leaves, red currants and wild thyme. The medium-bodied palate offers intense red berry and earth flavors with a solid backbone of grainy tannins and lively acid, finishing with great length.” Issue Date: 31st Dec 2016. 91 Points. Lisa Perrotti-Brown for Robert Parker Wine Advocate.
"Certified organic, the 2013 vintage (5*) is from clay slopes in the Omaka Valley. Estate-grown and hand-picked, it was fermented with indigenous yeasts, matured for 18 months in French oak barriques (20 per cent new), and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Deep ruby, it is fragrant, savoury and generous, with strong, youthful, plummy, spicy, slightly nutty flavours, showing good complexity, and a firm, sustained finish. Best drinking 2018+." 5 Stars, Michael Cooper.
Scented and appealing pinot noir with ripe plum, cherry, berry, subtle floral and spicy oak flavours. Concentrated wine with power, an appealing texture and lingering finish. An elegant wine that promises to develop well with bottle age. 2/3/2017 Drink 2017 to 2023." 95 Points. Bob Campbell.
"Very fine deep colour, rich, briary and autumnal fruits on the nose, blackberries rather than blackcurrants, but the summer ripeness is very present, slightly earthy with vigour and a rich texture, firm yet fine tannins, long aftertaste, fine vineyard expression. (Beaune 1er Cru/Pommard). To 2023." 18/94. Steven Spurrier.
"Organically grown. Hand-picked. Ambient yeast. 17 months in French oak. Unfined and unfiltered. Bright crimson and very convincing. Layered and vital. Savoury, sophisticated with a dry finish. Long, neat, with very bright fruit. Great balance." Drink 2017 – 2024. Published 7 March 2017, Tasted 23 Jan 2017. 17/20. Jancis Robinson
