Yealands Estate

Yealands Estate ‘Land Made’ Pinot Noir 2016 Marlborough
Ripe red fruits bouquet with raspberry and darker cherry aromas; some baking spice moments and crushed red rose layer, some mineral highlights. Dry with a savoury edge, youthful, slightly firm tannins contrasted by red fruit flavours and acidity. A little more time is needed to integrate and find its mojo. Best from late 2018 through 2024.
88 Points

Yealands Family Wines ‘Premium Selection Good Company’ Pinot Noir 2016 Marlborough
Tart red fruits, red apple skin and red cherry aromas laced with a soft wood spice layer and vanilla oak scents. Youthful, firm and dry on the palate with flavours and textures that reflect the nose; fine tannins with a youthful bite and medium+ acidity. Starting to integrate requiring some cellar time. Best from late 2018 through 2024.
