“The energetic, finely crafted 2022 vintage is designed as a ‘laidback approach to Pinot Noir, not looking for polished perfection, rather speaking of wild rudimental abandon’. Full, bright ruby, it is fragrant and full-bodied, graceful, and supple, with strong, ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, gently seasoned with oak, and a long, finely poised finish. Showing excellent weight, depth, vibrancy and harmony, it’s already drinking well, but likely to be at its best mid-2025+. 5/5 Points.”
Michael Cooper, New Zealand’s most acclaimed wine writer with 40 books and several major literary awards to his credit, reviews SPOKE ‘Rudimental’ 2022.
