An exceptionally balanced wine showing a lovely integration of finegrained tannins and full fruit flavours. Full bodied with marvellous texture and length resulting in a wine that has intensity to match fuller flavoured dishes. Aromatically savoury with delightful earthy, forest floor aromas, a touch of truffle with supporting plummy, dark red fruit notes.

Drinking well now but will continue to develop for a further five years from vintage date.
Pinot Noir can be enjoyed with an extraordinary variety of dishes. This wine is best suited to full-flavoured dishes such as venison with savoury sauces, roast duck or a pork loin served with potatoes and herbs.
KORO is Māori for grandfather and this range is named in honour of Royce McKean’s great-great-great-grandfather, Chief Tiki Tere Mihi. This is our most exclusive range and currently has a Central Otago Pinot Noir and a Hawke’s Bay Chardonnay. The Koro range wines are individually hand- crafted from grapes harvested at optimum ripeness and made in very limited quantities.
