Rata Vineyard Pinot Noir
The Crater Rim Rata Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015 | 94/100 | 5 Stars
This is sweetly fruited and seductively savoury at the same time, showing spiced cherry, plum, dark mushroom, hazelnut and warm spice aromas on the nose, leading to a gracefully expressed palate that is velvety and flowing. The wine offers wonderful fruit intensity backed by spicy/savoury nuances, superbly framed by fine texture and polished tannins.

The Crater Rim Rata Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015 | 93/100 | 4 Stars
Bright, rich and moderately concentrated wine with dark cherry, plum, cassis, subtle crushed herb, anise and spicy oak flavours. Fresh acidity adds vibrancy. A fine-boned wine with cellaring potential. Bob Campbell, The Real Review
The Crater Rim Rata Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017 | 93/100 | 5 Stars
Wonderfully complex and inviting, the bouquet shows dried cherry, plum, thyme, tapenade and smoked game characters. The palate delivers sweet fruit intensity with rich savoury nuances, backed by fine polished tannins, finishing persistent and captivating. Sam Kim, Wine Orbit.
