Kahurangi Estate Mt. Arthur Reserve Nelson Pinot Noir 2021

The incredibly low yielding 2021 vintage rewarded us with simply superb fruit. This subtle yet complex wine displays beautiful aromas of forest floor berries and soft mildly spicy new oak. The tannins are silky and the flavours of ripe cherries and Black Doris plums abound.

Notes

2021 Harvest was another high quality but tough vintage for the Nelson region. Starting with a cool spring and late, dry summer volumes were down overall by 35%. On the upside, the quality of fruit is superb, perfect for making sensational wine. The incredibly low yielding vintage rewarded us with simply superb fruit. This subtle yet complex wine displays beautiful aromas of forest floor berries and soft mildly spicy new oak. The tannins are silky and the flavours of ripe cherries and Black Doris plums abound.

Food Pairing

This elegant Pinot Noir is delicious served with duck, salmon or aged cheese.

Cellar

This beautifully crafted, full bodied Pinot Noir is gorgeous now but deserves some time. Now until 2030+

Reviews & Awards

5 Stars - Sam Kim, Wine Orbit 2022

By Sam Kim, Wine Orbit

Richly fruited and elegantly complex on the nose showing dark plum, violet, mixed spice and rich floral aromas, followed by a succulent palate delivering silky flow backed by fine tannins, finishing wonderfully long and delectable. At its best: now to 2030

Rating: 94/100
Outstanding - Cameron Douglas Master Sommelier 2022

By Cameron Douglas MS

A very enticing bouquet with aromas of dark cherry and toasty barrel, some black currant and vanilla, clove and dark rose highlights. Youthful and complex. Lovely intensity and core of fruit, dryness on the palate and core flavours of dark cherry and plum then violets and wood spices with a touch of bacon-oak, toasty barrel and wood sweetness. Firm tannins, medium+ acidity and lengthy complex finish. A wine that is both enjoyable today and will cellar well till 2024 through 2030.

Rating: 95/100
