fortunately, tasted this delicious Pinot by Waitiri. Rather Burgundian in style, this garnet broth smells heavily of barnyard, cooked red berries and earth. Full bodied, balanced and with soft tannins. Good structure and depth, a long finish, loaded with fruit and very pleasing. Great job by the Waitiri Creek gang, albeit, the 2008 product was not as exhilarating.
