Description

From the Cleland Vineyard in Cambridge Street in Martinborough, Kiwa's near 30-year-old vines are a mix of UCD clones 5, 6 and 13, producing a wine of great savoury character and complexity. Widely tauted as the vintage of a generation, 2013 was a benchmark vintage in Martinborough, among the best they've ever seen. Our suggestion is buy as much as you can, drink some now because at 5 years of age it's starting to drink beautifully and will continue to cellar through another 5-10 years.

Smells

A tantalising array of spices, florals, herbs and fruit - a complex nose, in that it's tough to identify individual elements, rather the whole is just so harmonious with a subtle smoky wood note providing depth.

Tastes

Rich and elegant with a subtle nutty, coffee note to the resplendent cherry and plum fruit, a fine tannic structure holding the long, pure finish. Classic Burgundian expression of Pinot Noir, this is serious value for money and will reward cellaring through 2026.
