Black Estate Home Pinot Noir 2018


Black Estate Home Pinot Noir 2018:

Cameron Douglas MSCameron Douglas MS: 94/100. A complex and enticing bouquet that expresses immediately a sense of place through the detail in the aromas of limestone-like soil, dried herb, a savoury whole bunch and ripe fruits. Then tea and spices. On the palate - poised and tense with fine to moderate tannins, medium+ acidity and flavours of wild berries and flowers, raspberry and cherry, tea then dried herb. Not yet in balance - give it time in your cellar to achieve this. Best drinking from early 2022 through 2026+.


review Black Estate Home Pinot Noir 2018Christina Pickard, Wine Enthusiast (USA): 94/100. Nicholas Brown and Penelope Naish are part of the new wave of talent in North Canterbury, making organically farmed wines with minimal intervention. There's a lovely vibrancy of color to this vintage of Pinot, and a raw energy. Oodles of crunchy fresh strawberry notes are backed by cinnamon, clove, flower stalks and stone. The sappy tannins have a surprising bite but an easy, natural presence rather than being oak-driven. There's beautiful fruit purity and an overall cool climate, unadulterated vibe.


Tasting Note

Compelling fresh and complex aromas of wild forest berrys, wild rose petal, and humid earth. Silky mouth coating tannins that gradually melt to reveal rich berry fruits, red current, and spice. The balance gives a clear impression of the soft, fertile and highly mineralised sedimentary clay soils of the Home Vineyard. This is an unfiltered wine with small amounts of sediment. Please allow the bottle to stand and settle before pouring. Decanting will allow maximum expression of aroma and purity of fruit to emerge.
