Colour: Rich ruby red.

Aroma: Lifted aromatic rose petal, wild raspberry and blackberry, cinnamon and nutmeg spice jump from the glass with lavender and earthiness following.

Palate: The palate is spicy, with great length. The Te Muna Road minerality drives through the middle of the palate, showcasing the delicate ripe gypsum tannins that were gently extracted from the skins during ferment.

94 points - Bob Campbell MW

Appealing, elegant pinot noir with red fruits, spice, wood-smoke, fresh herbs and subtle floral flavours. A high-energy wine with a backbone of bright, fresh acidity and fine, peppery tannins.
