90 points Wine Enthusiast
"This wine starts off a little barnyardy, which is unusual for this producer. It blows off a little, but a leathery, earthy quality remains, along with slightly flashy oak. There's plenty of plump red-currant and blueberry fruit, though, along with violets and a peppery spice. The palate is supple and juicy with a soft grip of savory tannins and a tangy, exotic spiced finish. Drink now through 2027."
"From Gibbston subregion.
Voluptuous and generous nose with blackberry, red cherry, plum and stemmy herbal notes. Medium bodied with silky fine tannins and a rich generosity to the fruit. Lovely balance of savoury and sweet with a plummy hoisin note on the mid palate and good freshness throughout. Drinking beautifully at the moment. 17/20 points. (AC)"
Vinous Reverie Notes
Peregrine winery and vineyards are located in the southernmost grape-growing region in the world, at latitude 45 degrees south, in Central Otago, the heart of New Zealand’s South Island. Central Otago is New Zealand’s only inland and elevated wine growing region. A region of towering mountains, river valleys, and alluvial schist soils.
