On the nose the Huia Pinot Noir shows notes of spice, violets and dark cherry. The palate is rich and full with plum and dark cherry alongside hints of spice and savoury notes. Pairs well with teriyaki beef, roasted pork and figs, mushroom and garlic risotto.

Scents of strawberries laced with tea leaves and rose petals appear on the nose of Huia's 2016 Pinot Noir. Probably at its peak right now, this medium-bodied, silky-textured effort finishes with bright, mouthwatering acids and a subtle dusting of fine-grained tannins. Nicely harmonious and elegant, it's not the concentrated wine the 2015 was, but it's certainly charming.

A toasty, savory Pinot Noir that's full-bodied and mellow with the supple embrace of tannins providing the cheeks with a chalky veil. At a lovely stage in its development, moving away from the simple primary fruits of cherry and damson to its secondary stage, but there's still room for flavor evolution over the coming 5-7 years.

This is currently in an odd spot, but seems to be heading to tastier places. Right now it needs time in decanter to open up. It then offers lovely red fruit and a meaty, hoisin-like savoriness. The palate is muffled, emphasizing the drying, raspy tannins. But the juicy fruit lingers long on the finish. A wine that needs time to reveal its charms.
