A 50-50 blend of fruit from Northburn and Bannockburn (Cloudy Bay leases a portion of the Calvert Vineyard), the 2015 Te Wahi Pinot Noir is a full-bodied, plummy wine. It shows some pretty florals on the nose, but the palate is chocolaty and rich, offering hints of cola and dark-skinned plums. It's powerful and plush, with a velvety texture and lingering finish, almost verging on Californian (Russian River Valley?) in style.

This shows plenty of fruit richness with darker cherries, toasted spices and earthy aromas, as well as some fresh violet-like florals, too. The palate is succulent, smoothly layered and has attractive tannins that build in layers to a smooth, pastry-like finish. Ready now.

This is a flashy Pinot from one of New Zealand's most famous names. It reveals luscious red, black and blue fruit, black olives, earthy spice and quite a lot of toasty, vanillin oak. The palate is dense and ripe, even a little hot alcohol-wise, with lashings of oak spice and a silky smooth texture.
