Description

Winemaker Matt Thomson was one of the biggest names in Marlborough winemaking, thanks not just to his well-documented successes with Saint Clair, but also his 20+ years of extensive winemaking consulting for special Italian and other European producers. It's the vast bank of old and new world winemaking experience that's grown Matt into the exceptional winemaker he is today. Like Kevin Judd and James Healy before him, he's elected to go out on his own and make a mark like Greywacke or Dog Point with his new Blank Canvas label. After rave reviews from Jancis Robinson for his 2014 Pinot, his new 2017 is another gem. Very Burgundian like with is agrodolce palate and firmer structure, it should cellar for 10+ years with ease and pair well with complex game dishes and fatty South Island lamb.

Smells

Complex herbal and smokey aromatics, matched with perfectly ripe cherry fruit and rose petal fragrance.

Tastes

Very generous and soft in the mouth, with loads of red cherries and summer plums, with red liquorice and exotic spices. The tannins are sophisticated and finely mouth coating, guiding a relentless savoury tinged finish. Expect this to cellar beautifully, savour its seductive charms and complexities between now and 2026+.
