One of the best Pinot Noir in NZ.
Steve Davie could be said is a perfectionist and this is obvious when you taste his only wine. From his own exciting site in Bannockburn, he nuture's everything to build a Pinot with authenticity, regionality and high end quality,
"Complex, savoury, true to region and variety with aromas of dark berries, plum and dried herb with a thyme and stony soils aromas, dark cherry and a touch of dried raspberry. Enticing with intrigue and focus on variety and site. Delicious on the palate with flavours that mirror the bouquet, firm-ish tannins and great acid line with a delicious savoury complexity. An excellent example capturing the variety, a sense of place and wonderful pinosity. Best drinking from late 2021 through 2027+. 94 Points, Cameron Douglas
"Produced from grapes grown in a 3-ha Bannockburn vineyard with 480, 000-year-old soils comprising clay, fine silt and gravel. A rich, weighty wine with intense plum, dark cherry, cassis, raspberry, floral and violet flavours. It improves with a little aeration before serving. 16 SEP 2021."
