Grown, made and bottled in Central Otago
Grasshopper Rock, Earnscleugh Vineyard, Pinot Noir 2017 was harvested by hand in early April 2017, matured in barrels for 10 months and bottled in March 2018.
A complex and intriguing bouquet of Pinot Noir with suggestions of ripe red berry fruits, layers of wood spice and dried herbs, a dark rose and lavender combination, a deep seated earthy quality and most importantly Pinosity and charm. 96/100 Cameron Douglas MS
Herbal complexity, raspberry and violet notes with background mocha notes from barrel age. The palate shows moderate weight with real elegance. Fine Wines of New Zealand 2019
Fragrant pinot noir with attractive floral notes together with fleshy plum, dark cherry, wet stone and mineral characters. More weight and fruit intensity than usual perhaps thanks to vintage conditions and vine age. Impressive purity and length. 95/100 Bob Campbell MW – The Real Review
