It's concentrated and powerful on the palate, yet remains elegant and poised, leading to an exceptionally long silky finish. A total seduction. At its best: 2014 to 2022. "

Terra Sancta Jackson’s Block Pinot Noir 2010

Cuisine Magazine, December 2012 “The label is rich and mysterious, as is this fabulous pinot, where dense fruit is set against a superb, much-admired structure”.

Sam Kim Wine Orbit Review:  96/100 "The bouquet is gloriously perfumed with red/black cherry, blueberry, game, floral and subtle vanillin oak characters. It's succulent and sumptuous on the palate with outstanding mid palate weight and velvety texture, finishing impressively long and silky. Tannins are beautifully polished and integrated. At its best: 2014 to 2020."

Gold Medal - New Zealand International Wine Show 2012

Sam Kim Wine Orbit Review: 94/100 "2011 was a challenging vintage in Central Otago, with only a handful of top producers making outstanding pinots. This is one of those. The bouquet is glorious and fragrant, displaying dark cherry, game, truffle and subtle vanillin oak characters. It's succulent and beautifully weighted on the palate with velvety texture and supple tannins, finishing superbly long and seamless. At its best: now to 2018."

Terra Sancta Estate Rosé 2012 (inaugrual release)

Bob Campbell Review:   93/100  "Pale pink wine with the scent of strawberries and wildflowers. Charming wine with a seductively silky texture and an elusive suggestion of sweetness that fades to a gently drying finish. It's hard to imagine a Pinot noir Rose getting much better than this."

Sam Kim Wine Orbit Review:  91/100 "A delightful rosé, the bouquet shows lifted aromas of raspberry, red cherry, floral and a hint of stone fruit.It's juicy and lively on the palate with excellent weight and perfectly pitched acidity, finishing long and refreshing. This is more flavoursome than most rosés with superb intensity. At its best: now to 2015."

Taste Magazine, November 2012: Bob Campbell’s picks. "This gold medal, trophy winning wine is about as good as rose can possibly be...Totally seductive wine with a label that will add gravitas to any occasion."
