"A beautifully maturing pinot, the inviting bouquet shows dried cherry, smoked game, clove and roasted nut aromas, followed by an elegantly weighted palate that's smooth and flowing. It's well proportioned and flavoursome with charming bottle-developed complexity."
"A wickedly drinkable Pinot, from a classic Martinborough vineyard, that seriously over delivers! The 99 Rows pours a Dark cherry red. Aromas of sweet ripe blue and red fruits and lifted rose petal floral notes elegantly lift from the glass, later developing hints of Bergamot orange peel. The palate is bright, vibrant acidity combines with fine chalky tannins to provide an elegance and purity that typifies Te Muna Road Pinot Noir." Wine Orbit
"Classic and complete, a bouquet with aromas of Martinborough silty mineral soils and red berry fruits of strawberry and old cherry - some fresh, some dried and maraschino. Complex and inviting. Flavours of red fruits and baking spices from oak, fine integrating tannins." Cam Douglas Master Sommelier. March 2021
