Walnut Ridge Pinot Noir 2003

89 points

Martinborough, New Zealand. 13.5%

A warm soft, big cuddly Pinot Noir. Drinking well now. It’s not super fine, and certainly not vin de garde. But it is pure, well crafted and flavourful. Vastly better than the Chard Farm ‘River Run’ Pinot tasted alongside.

This is the sort of Pinot that is building NZ reputation.

PS Apparently this winery is now opened and operated by Ata Rangi, who have a fine reputation for Pinot Noir.
