Omihi Rise Pinot Noir
Omihi Rise Pinot Noir 2011 - 91+/100 Wine Advocate issue # 197
The 2009 Omihi Rise Pinot Noir has a medium ruby-purple hue and youthfully mute aromas of red plums and red currants over macerated cherries, forest floor, black truffles and raw meat. Medium to full bodied, the palate is led by a solid structure of medium-firm grainy tannins and crisp acid with concentrated fruit and earth layers finishing long with the faintest suggestion of menthol. Approachable now, it should drink best 2012 to 2016+."

Wonderfully matured and sweetly fragrant, the wine displays dried cherry, thyme, toasted almond, dark mushroom and tapenade characters on the nose, leading to a concentrated palate that is beautifully weighted and supple, offering delectable fruit flavours with rich savoury notes. It is silky, persistent and delicious with loads of complex flavours.

A gorgeously maturing pinot; the superbly complex bouquet shows dried cherry, charcuterie, warm spice and earthy mushroom characters, leading to a silky-smooth palate that is elegantly weighted and beautifully flowing. The wine offers sweet fruit flavours together with seductive savoury undertones, finishing persistent and silky.

Bright, fresh, high energy pinot noir with cherry, plum, mineral, wood-smoke and spicy oak flavours. Surprisingly fresh considering the vintage. Bob Campbell, The Real Review

It is splendidly fruited and impressively complex on the nose showing dark cherry, spiced plum, truffle, floral and nutmeg characters with hints of dried herb and game. The palate is equally engaging with magnificent fruit power backed by velvety mouthfeel. Multi-layered and attractively savoury. Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
