2014 Pinot Noir

Plenty of depth to this 2014 Dog Point pinot. It's a boldly stated and concentrated pinot with plenty of detail and interest on offer. The oak delivers plenty of spicy, mocha-tinged complexity, but the rich red-cherry and plum fruit shines through effortlessly. The palate exudes the same confident swagger as the nose, but it's the tannin texture that shines here: Handsome, grainy and long, it carries ripe dark-plum and cherry-fruit flavors in an expansive yet balanced style. Has all you want in a great pinot. Drink now to 2026 (has moved to screw cap).

2014 Pinot Noir

Lively crimson. Real fan of flavours on the nose – unusual in this context. Very bright Marlborough signature on the palate – another wine that really succeeds within the Marlborough idiom. Very slight coffee note on the end. But long and impressive. Drink 2017 – 2021
