Vibrant strawberry and cherry notes, roses, young leaf. Ripe nose but delicate palate.

Winebid special. Uncomplicated but enjoyable.

Each sip revealed more depth. I still get tops notes of "breast fed baby diaper" when I nose their pinots. Stick that in your craw and chew on it...

This must be the most interesting Kiwi Pinot I have tasted yet. Raspberry perfume to start but lots of weird and wonderful earthy and mushroom aromas on the palate. Initially I thought this was a little soft but there are actually quite firm but fine tannins providing good structure as well.
