The Global Pinot Noir Masters 2023


Traditionally, Marlborough has been known for producing world famous Sauvignon Blanc. BUT Marlborough Pinot Noir is quickly becoming a rising star... 

The Global Pinot Noir Masters is a highly esteemed competition that brings together top-rated wines from around the world for blind tastings by a panel of expert judges. At this year's Global Pinot Masters, the results were overall very positive! 

We have been proudly awarded:

The Ned Pinot Noir 2021 - "An excellent value Pinot Noir that also represents a fine expression of Marlborough Pinot Noir, with its aromas of tomato and dried hears, flavours of ripe cherry, and typically light body with delicate tannic structure. Complementing all this is a subtle oak influence, adding hints of mocha and roasted coffee to the mix".
The King's Wrath Pinot Noir 2021 - "A delicate, pretty nose with some leaf, pepper and red berry fruit. The palate has leafy elements, veering into some tomato, but also with some and cherry, white pepper and a touch of black fruit. No overt oak, but a hint of background vanilla. Pure and fresh, with fine dry tannins and, in short, very Pinot".
Leefield Station Pinot Noir 2021 - "Mid-ruby in colour, with attractive mixed red berries, cream and crepes on the nose. The palate has smoky notes and cherry and fruit on a mid-weight palate. Crisp acidity and linen tannins throughout, with warm alcohol and a little length on the finish."
Craft Series Journey Pinot Noir 2019 - "First greets you with appealing tomato leaf and toast aromatics. The palate has lots of tomato fruit too. Quite light, but with some fine firm tannin. There is no overt oak, keeping it fresh and lingering, if a touch stemmy, fresh and lingering. A good, layered example, but would expect a bit more fruit weight and sweetness".
