88? Points | Stephen Tanzer's IWC - September/October 2008
($23) Bright, palish red. Spicy red cherry and smoky oak aromas, with earthy and saline nuances. Juicy, tight and penetrating, with strong chalk and saline soil elements contributing to the wine's uncompromisingly dryness and impression of energy. Boasts moderate density but comes across as quite light on its feet. This very dry and rather salty wine is hardly your typical New Zealand pinot and is not recommended for those who seek fresh fruit above all other qualities. If anything, this turned dryer with extended aeration.
