93 POINTS: "Outstanding" Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier

A beautiful example of a fuller-bodied Marlborough style. Rounded, ripe plum and spicy oak play a warming role against balanced acidity and fine tannins, all of which smacks of what a perfect season it was in 2014. The Province is not a wine that shouts like some, but subtly generous in that alluring and savoury way that Pinot should be. Another delicious offering from master winemaker Simon Waghorn and a snapshot at the bright future Marlborough has in elegant Pinot.

“An attractive, fruity, floral and varietal bouquet with aromas of ripe red berry fruits, red plum and currant wrapped up in a shroud of toasty wood spices. Youthful, tense, fruity and dry on the palate. Dark cherry and baking spices, plum and toasty wood, tart strawberry and stony minerality. Well made, but very youthful and tense with firm tannins and plenty of acidity."
— 93/100 "Outstanding" Cameron Douglas, Master Sommelier
