A seductive combination of blackberries, blueberries and sweet black plums intermingled with roasted chestnuts, cloves and dark tobacco - rich and exotic with hints of lavender and rose petal. A highly perfumed, aromatic style of Marlborough pinot with opulent fruit sweetness and a delicate smoky infusion. The palate is generous with ripe fruit, fine tannins and a delicious spicy finish.

Smooth and elegant, with notes of caramel, nutmeg and black tea adding fragrant nuances to the plum and black cherry flavors at the core. Velvety tannins provide some traction on the finish. Drink now through 2031. 750 cases imported.

Kevin Judd's 2017 Pinot Noir shows a hint of green bean on the nose, perhaps a hint of stemminess, alongside ripe red and black cherries. It's medium-bodied and softly dusty in texture, with those soft tannins lingering on the finish.

This wine is initially quite reductive, offering mostly oniony funk. It blows off eventually but requires plenty of time in a glass or decanter to do so. It's not helped by the mealy oak, which turns more caramel as it sits in the glass. Underneath, ripe fruit, florals and whole bunch spiciness are divulged. Oak-derived tannins are chalky and knit tightly around juicy fruit, but the wine takes a bitter turn at the finish.
