The wine has a compelling bright, crimson/purple colour.  Aromatically it is profound, showing some of the classic cool-climate Pinot characters of cranberry and dark cherry. There are exotic spice and a lovely mossy earthiness.  Intriguing brown spice notes, anise & cinnamon with a tasty lick of black pepper emerge as a regional characteristic in the Waitaki.  In the mouth the wine is sublime, in its extreme youth it feels energetic and vital, much like a young Burgundy.  There is tension, fine grained, powdery tannins, crunchy acid and gently warming alcohol which provide a textural framework for the wine to express this amazing site.  It is without doubt the finest Pinot Noir we have ever made.  Jeff Sinnott, Winemaker
