"...Delicious young, it is fragrant and vibrantly fruity, with very generous plum, black current, red-berry and spice flavours, gentle tannins, and a very harmonious, rich, finish. Forward in it's appeal, it's likely to be at its best 2019+" Michael Cooper

Silvers who knows...
How good is it then...As good as it gets.
Out right winner for the lovers of the smooth, rounded chocolate and rich berryfruit style, where there are spicy hints but spicy is the compliment not the main course. Here its about rich fruit and being reflected in history.
We rate this wine extremely highly, not only for it's value, but its quality is simply super.

Trophy for Champion Pinot Gris NZIWS 2018
Gold Medal NZIWS 2018
“The bouquet hints of honeysuckle, ginger and vanilla poached pear that join white peach and spice in the beautifully textured, lightly viscous palate. Impressively focussed, just on the cusp of off dry, with beautifully balanced savoury tones.” NZIWS

Top Up. Last Dance
Anchor Bay Nelson Pinot Noir 2017
The end of…
To quote an old wine industry line: "Pinot Noir this good should never be this inexpensive."
We had the pleasure of trying a set of wines recently. The last two wines were Pinot Noir's. The seconds cost price was almost triple the firsts. You guessed it; the first one was the star. Yes it was lighter and yes unlike the second one it wasn't from Central Otago and has a bag of really top medals.
Colour: Bright, ruby red.
Nose: Loads of cherry and plum
Palate: Rounded, soft, elegant, smooth. Sweet plums and cherries with chocolate and vanilla notes in the back ground. Very charming and inviting.
As a hint over these hot days slightly chill it; you'll be delighted.
Over our 20 plus years in business Pinot Noirs this good at this price are a rarity. A lighter Pinot Noir that is beautifully formed. It was bound for Australia. Their loss is our gain.

“From Earnscleugh in the deep south, this has aromas of plums and cherries and the taste is dry, crisp, tangy and lively with vibrant fruit offset by a soft vinous flow.”
