Caroline's Pinot noir 2009

The 2009 has a dense rich red, colour, bright and powerful, with real intensity on the palate. A sweet-fruited, riper style, but still enough acidity to hold it fresh. This is the powerful brother of the more delicate 2008.

(Jasper Morris MW, June 2012)

Sensual, sensational Kiwi pinot noir from an obscure region based on limestone soils between central Otago and Christchurch, it's intensely fragrant with a mulberry and raspberry fruitiness that's seriously opulent, spicy and textured, but never jammy or cloying.

Anthony Rose, The Independent, Dec 2011
