Two Paddocks

Two Paddocks 'The Last Chance' Pinot Noir 2013 
Earnscleugh Vineyard - Otago
On the nose - quite soft and fragrant with sweet oak spices mixed with darker berry fruits and crushed roses fill the bouquet; dark cherry and red apple skin; complex and intriguing. On the palate - tense, dry, textures of chalky tannins and youthful vibrant acidity mixed with dark cherry and berry fruit flavours; darker baking spice moments plus clove and toasty oak. Youthful, complex, lengthy finish.
96 Points

Two Paddocks 'The Fusilier' 2014 Pinot Noir Bannockburn
On the nose - an immediate signature of mineral, soil, soft dried herb and ripe ripe fruit, wild black cherry, dark red apple skin, some cashew nutty oak and toasty spice. On the palate - a great reflection of what the nose suggests - with sweet red berry fruits, fine tannins with dried herb and schist soil ideas, lots of youthful energy from medium+ acidity. Great length
95 points
