Nose/Aroma - Cherries with a seasoning of oak.
Palate/Flavors - Cherries and violets upfront that lead into cedar oak and earthy flavors. Quite light bodied and the mid-palate is lacking a bit.
Food Pairing - Lemon chicken with yoghurt sauce.
Comments- This wine is a pretty good value; nothing particularly special about it, but it shows good varietal character. Having tasted through Te Kairanga's range of Pinot Noirs, I can tell you that this wine pails in comparison to the Runholder and John Martin Reserve.
