Puriri Hills pope, Vintage 2010



THE REVIEWS

98 Points, “Dense yet elegant red with an intriguing mix of savoury and berry fruit flavours together with a suggestion of floral and anise . Beautifully structured with obvious cellaring potential, although the wine can still be appreciated now.”  Gourmet Traveller WINE Feb/Mar 2015

5 stars “Deeply coloured, it is mouthfilling and supple, with substantial body and deep, lush blackcurrant, herb, spice and nut flavours, framed by fine, silky tannins. Showing lovely richness and texture, it’s a drink-now or cellaring proposition.  Outstandingly lush and complex, with ripe, supple tannins and very deep plum, spice, herb and slight liquorice flavours, it shows great potential.” Michael Cooper’s 2015 Wine Reviews

97 Points, “It's a dense, rich and still quite youthful red, with primary fruit flavours of dark berry, floral and spice tempered with an appealing savoury richness from bottle age. A backbone of fine tannins promises to allow further development. Remarkable wine that could be mistaken for a Right Bank Bordeaux.” Bob Campbell Aug 2018
