Made by Lynette Hudson, formerly of Pegasus Bay, this South Island red announces itself as Pinot Noir with its fragrant spice and cherry perfume while the vanilla-laced palate is rich and juicy in loganberry and cherry fruit with a gentle touch of oak contributing to some firmish, youthfully grippy tannins that make the wine approachable while giving it the opportunity to develop further in the bottle.

Bright red. Very confident Pinot Noir and full of pzazz. Not playing the delicacy card. But powering in there. Well done! Especially in view of the price. Juicy and well balanced. GV Rating: 17 Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Nov 2018)

Voluptuous violets and so full of charm that winemaker Lynnette Hudson must be very proud of this. Too sweet for burgundy but so much more interesting than the average Kiwi Pinot. Glorious.Jancis Robinson OBE MW - www.JancisRobinson.com(Dec 2017)

Tongue in Groove

Six friends, five of them Roseworthy graduates (although the winemaker, Lynette Hudson, is a graduate of Lincoln) were prompted to form this 'perfect fit' team by the Canterbury earthquake and the realisation that they had to get on with doing something themselves as well as working for others. All well-connected in the NZ wine scene, they are able to source outstanding fruit and clearly have the expertise to turn this into outstanding wines. Check out their website at http://tongueingroove.co.nz/about/. Their first releases have already caused quite a stir - but are very limited in quantity.
