I enjoy our Pinot noirs for their expression of the Martinborough terroir which is achieved while preserving their distinct Dry River personality. This wine is an intense ruby which inclines to hints of mahogany, with a nose showing both florals and red/black berries followed by crushed aromatic leaves, Christmas fruitcake spice, ginger and gamey undertones. The palate is charming – suave and silky, hiding a moderately firm spreading structure with a long after-taste. Flavours of red and black cherries dominate the Christmas fruit cake spice and carob and this is followed by a similar gamy undertone matching the aromatics. These wines can “go into a tunnel” after 6 months or so – but by next spring expect it to open, finally showing its true breed from about 3-4 years. Many of our Pinots have rewarded those who have cellared them for over ten years.
