Winemaker Notes

This is the most grown up Cornish Point yet. It has all the classic components (vibrantly fruited, voluptuous and rounded mouthfeel...), but with a structural complexity we have rarely seen before. Indulgent but serious tannins demand a thoughtful conversation in this 15th rendition. Baritones and altos all in harmony leading to a crescendo of a finish.

Decanter 96 points
Distant wood smoke, a flicker of nettle and lovely, tart blackberry fruit make for an aromatic nose. The palate comes in with exquisite freshness and a firm structure. Typically for Cornish Point, aromatic high jinks highlight the lovely juiciness. The finish comes with an echo of smoke and apple pip. Totally mouth-watering. This spent 13 months in 25% new French oak.

James Suckling 96 points
A very energetic pinot with a fine line of tannins running through with a powdery texture. Medium-bodied and very compacted with beautiful berry, strawberry and extremely long. Subtle complexity with salted caramel undertones. Drink or hold.
Vivino 4.3 points
One of the best Pinot Noirs made in New Zealand, and possibly the best Pinot Noir at this price point. If you have not yet tried a Central Otago Pinot Noir, don't hesitate- you'll be mesmerized at its beautiful balance, complexity, and long finish - Travis (Mandara Wine)
