Te Kairanga Runholder Pinot Noir 2015 - August 2017 Decanter review

Te Kairanga is one of the oldest and best-positioned vineyards in Martinborough. Its vineyards are located on free draining land once owned by the founding father of Martinborough, John Martin, in the late 1800s.

The grapes for ‘Runholder’, a tribute to the original settlers, are grown on low-cropping vines; selective hand-picking, small batch fermentation and sensitive oak handling contribute to producing this rich, concentrated Pinot Noir. Traditional fermentation in small vats is employed with hand-plunging and gentle pressing off to release the flavour locked in the skins; movement of juice and wine around the winery is by gravity and the wine spends 15 months in French oak barrels, a quarter new. Initial aromas of black cherry, ripe plum and spice are backed by a velvety textured palate with subtle oak notes.


A To Z Wineworks Pinot Noir 2014 (1x75cl)

This Pinot Noir shows great poise, concentrated depth and purity within a lacy framework. Great ripe acidity and tannic structure bring balance to this classic, succulent, intense wine. Perhaps the most beautiful Pinot Noir they have made to date.


Craggy Range Te Muna Road Pinot Noir 2014 (1 x 75cl)

Craggy Te Muna PN 2014 - Sept 2016 Decanter review

The grapes for this wine are picked by hand.  The wine is fermented in a combination of stainless steel vats and oak, then is matured for 10 months prior to bottling.

Matt Stafford, the chief winemaker at Craggy range describes the Te Muna Road Vineyard Pinot Noir as follows:  "A dark and brooding Pinot Noir, grown at our secret place in Martinborough, with a wonderful depth and beauty."

The wine has a bright red cherry colour with a crimson hue. Seductive aromas of dark cherry, dried rose petals, thyme and damp earth. Beautifully varietal, elegant and long on the palate. Medium weight red fruit richness and fine-grained tannins are drawn out long across the palate by acidity to create a finish which is savoury and dry.

This wine matches perfectly with duck dishes.  It can be cellared for 5-7 years from vintage but only if you can resist opening it before then!
