The tasting team from WineNZ Magazine concluded that the wine, bottled only days before the tasting, had the potential to achieve the same outcome as the 2016 Kokolo Vineyard stablemate, which achieved Gold in their autumn tasting. Praise indeed.
Simon Nash described it as: Nice, chunky, vinous colour. Good chunky dark chocolate. Nice on palate, green edged, Solid.
Ant Mackenzie: Dense, mealy nose, briney/brooding. Bitter chocolate. Rich.
Barry Riwai: Structural pinot. Savoury with long tannin. Dark herbal/roasted cherry.
