The ‘Black Poplar Block’ is a four hectare planting which takes its name from the two majestic 100 year old Black Poplar trees that dominate the vineyard. The first two hectares are planted in Clone 10/5 and 5 - the balance is planted in a number of Dijon clones - 113, 777, 114, 115 and 667. The wine has been matured in French oak barriques (one third new) for one year.
‘This wine received equal top billing at a recent tasting of Central Otago wines by Decanter Magazine.’
Excellent depth of colour displaying a deep dark red black core and dark red hue. Lifted ripe black cherry intermixed with anise scents emerge from the glass followed by some black plum, subtle dried meats and light spicy cedar undertones. Rich and powerful the palate has medium weighted flavours of succulent black cherries, anise and black plum over some dried meat characters and well integrated spicy toasted oak. Well defined but fine grained tannins. Very good power wave with long black cherry, anise, dried meats and spicy toasty oak aftertaste.
Cellar 5-6 years.
For many, this is a Pinot Noir that sums up all that is best about Central Otago. Vine age approaching 20 years has contributed to the pungent aroma and impressively dense and sumptuous texture. The vineyard is in Pisa, adjacent to the Cromwell Basin – the heartland of the Central Otago wine region. Each clone of Pinot Noir is harvested separately for optimum ripeness. The wine was aged in French oak barriques. For a long time after the first vintage of the Pinot Noir was released in 2000, owners Warwick and Jenny Hawker produced only Pinot Noir, although they have recently released a Riesling and Pinot Gris. – 18.75/20pts, 95+/100pts, Decanter Magazine January 2014.
