Coal Pit 'Tiwha' Pinot Noir 2015 Central Otago
Fresh, fruity and varietal with a gentle light red fruits bouquet suggesting light and darker red cherry, some red plum and sour cherry, softer brown kitchen spice layer and light vanilla tones. On the palate - as the nose suggests - juicy and fresh with flavours of light red fruits then soft vanilla and brown spices, gentle oak layer and mild finish. A very drinkable and approachable expression, balanced and well made. Drink now and through 2022.
Coal Pit Rose 2016 Central Otago (Pinot Noir)
Very engaging bouquet with strong scents of strawberry and light red cherry, a light floral/rose layer. On the palate - just dry, very fruity and fleshy, light red fruits and a hint of peach tea, plenty of acidity to contrast these attributes, a light and very fine tannin texture; overall an easy drinking style - fresh and juicy.
