Rippon 'Emma's Block' Pinot Noir 2015 (Central Otago, New Zealand) "...black cherry, spiced cocoa, flint..."
"A wealth of black cherries and flowers, pepper-laced cocoa powder and a stony, savory edge. The palate delivers cola-like dark spices and a core of rich dark plums and black cherries. Seamless, succulent tannins draw deep into the finish. Drink in 2020" - 95 Points, James Suckling
"Deep fragrance, so appealing, such a strong, siren song, cherries, sweet earth, truffle, old spice cupboard. The palate is awake, succulent, peaky on just-ripe cherry flavours, white pepper, lively herbal-stemmy character. Unadorned, pure, yet so much going on, tannins, crisp acidity, detail of fruit. Will last long, long in cellar too I suspect. Super expression." - 96 Points, Winefront
