WAITIRI CREEK PINOT NOIR
2014 Central Otago Pinot Noir
Fragrant perfume, herb, mushroom, and a hint of spicy oak.
The palate is dry with sweet, stewed plum, Xmas cake, leather, mushroom and tobacco. Richly textured with very fine silky tannins. Complex and concentrated. Medium to full-bodied with a lingering sweet cherry finish.
Aging beautifully and drinking well now! Has a few more years in it.

2013 Central Otago Pinot Noir
Ripe, warm and sweetly fragrant, the inviting bouquet shows dark cherry, plum, game and truffle characters with hints of cedar and vanilla. The palate offers terrific fruit richness and generous texture, beautifully framed by fine tannins. The wine is immediately appealing, although it will develop greater complexity with time. Pretty delicious.

2019 Central Otago Pinot Noir
Very attractive bouquet with aromas of red berries and stony schist soils, wild dried herb and a fine savoury core. On the palate - youthful, fresh and vibrant with an abundance of texture, core of fruit, moderate oak level and plenty of youthful vibrato. Flavours reflect the bouquet with dark cherry and dried raspberry, some plum then a return to the savoury core. Firm tannins and moderate oak level add foundation and texture. Lengthy finish and well made. Best drinking from mid to late 2022 and through 2030.
