90pts Wine Enthusiast
Perhaps the quietest expression to date of this wine, some swirling in glass brings forth delicate aromas like rose petals, strawberries, cherries, white spice, wild herbs and a warm earth character. The palate is elegant and textured, with tangy fruit and tannins that feel a little on the astringent side. As usual, the Petit Clos range of wines offers stellar value from a top biodynamic Marlborough producer.
90pts James Suckling
This has a plush and plump feel with a bright core of poached cherries and wild raspberries and supple, ripe tannins that rise off the finish. Drink now. Screw cap.
The nose reveals aromas of red berries, mainly dominated by cherry and plum notes. There is a juicy red berries mouthfeel on the palate supported by very fine and supple tannins while retaining freshness all the way to the long finish.
