Greenhough Stones Throw Pinot Noir, Nelson, South Island, New Zealand, 2017
100% Pinot Noir, organic, hand-harvested, with 11 months maturation in 228 and 500 litre French oak (15% new).
Fragrant, spice-drawer, orange citrus and cassis aromas. These also carry to the palate. The palate is fresh and defined with flavours of blackberry and brambles, savoury notes and a supple structure of well-bound tannins. Fine and long on the finish.
“A blend of neighbouring vineyards, the 2017 Stone’s Throw Pinot Noir is exceptionally fragrant and silky. offering up hints of smoked bacon, various savory spices, floral notes and dark berries. It’s medium-bodied, with delicate tannins that are just present enough to give the wine shape on the palate without interfering with its early consumption. Pretty and complex, it should be consumed over the next few years.”
92/100 points, Joe Czerwinski, The Wine Advocate, April 2020
