94 POINTS: Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
"Deep purple with purple hues. Fragrant violet, raspberry, dried herb, spice and leather. Lovely sweet fruit entry showing ripe red and black cherry, plum, leather and a hint of vanilla. Medium bodied with excellent concentration and complexity. The tannins are very silky and they lead into a long red berry and mineral finish." 

The Davishon Vineyard is situated on the terrace above the Clutha River between Alexandra and Clyde in Central Otago. Grapes have been growing here for 130 years. Jean Desire Ferauds produced the first grapes in Central Otago here in the 1860’s. He could see that the hot summer days and relatively cool nights would produce world class wines. Soils are free draining river gravels and the summer/autumn rainfall is very low. The philosophy of viticulturist and winemaker is low volume/high quality “to produce the best Pinot Noir possible!” The label shows a gold stylised Central Otago schist rock (made famous in scenes from the Lord of Rings) depicting the dry harsh environments and the history of gold in the valleys and mountains of the region.
