Description

We've been privileged to try long verticals of this Rippon Mature Vine Pinot Noir right back to 1991 and have witnessed this wine's remarkable ability to develop over time. This 2019 vintage is both enigmatic and charming in its youth... it’s initially reticent aromatics blossom into something special as it sits in the glass. Deep and very concentrated with signature tannin structure that comes from the interaction of the roots with the schist soils, this is a classic Rippon Mature Vine Pinot Noir... its combination of purity, elegance, subtlety and minerality are a nod to its bio-dynamic environment. A cellar tasting of 2010 Rippon Mature Vine Pinot last year by James Suckling drew NZ’s first and only ever perfect 100/100 international rating. James has followed up with a massive 99/100 the 2017 vintage and 98/100 for the 2018 vintage... we wait with baited breathe to see what he rates this excellent 2019.

Smells

lifted aromas of raspberries and cream, violets with a seductive, earthy, forest floor undercurrent, spice and a crunchy mineral flare.

Tastes

this Pinot certainly has a crunch factor, delicous red fruit flavours, raspberries, cranberries and with notes of warmed acorns. The tannins are devine, coating every millimeter of your cheeks, clinging on for dear life, but in an extra-ordinary, succulent and salivating manner, superb on every level. A wine with energy, vibrancy, concentration, balance, charm and poise. Simply the best.....
