94/100 – Cameron Douglas MS

“A natural unfiltered appearance, still bright and true to the variety’s colour spectrum leads to aromas and flavours of plums and tea, mangosteen berries, black currant juice and violets. Fine tannins, no oak noticed, medium+ acid line and a lengthy even finish. A super food friendly expression with best drinking from day of purchase through 2029.” – Cameron Douglas MS

Tasting Note: “The fourth and final wine of the lineup is also the standout. The Quiet Earth 2022 is a collaboration with Lance Redgewell at Cambridge Road in Martinborough. There were a few iterations along the way (I was lucky enough to try one of them and can attest that the final result is a vast improvement) but ultimately, the wine combines Pinot Noir from the Cirrus Estate vineyard with a Pinot Noir Syrah blend from the Cambridge Road vineyard (where the two varieties are planted together). This makes it 93% Pinot Noir and 7% Syrah with a combined total of 37% whole cluster fermentation and partial carbonic maceration. T he cuvaison ranged from 14 to 25 days on skins depending on the portion and the wine shows a clear backbone and structure whilst still retaining a lot of elegance and a clearly-defined jawline. Aged in tank, there is no oak to detract from the fabulously concentrated, spicy, classical Martinborough Pinot Noir flavours, elevated by the fresh, floral chewiness of cool-climate Syrah. A wine which comfortably straddles sweet fruit and savoury complexity with great control, it successfully blurs the lines between fine and natural wine.” – Stephen Wong MW
