Outstanding, 95 Points for Blank Canvas 'Anthem' Pinot Noir 2018
Cameron Douglas MS has laid his sensory receptors on our debut Central Otago wine, the 2018 Blank Canvas 'Anthem' Pinot Noir.
He awarded it an 'outstanding' 95 points, commenting it was:
"Ripe, intense, richly scented, varietal and fruity bouquet with aromas of ripe dark cherries and plums. There’s a definitive dried herb, savoury complexity - classic Otago message - then aromas of smoky oak with a quiet clove baking spice suggestion. All the action for this wine is on the palate - it’s delicious with a detailed story of spices and fruits, textures and length, concentration and a sense of place. Tannins are fine and polished, oak has a nut-like quality alongside the toast-wood. The core of fruit finishes with a floral note - a flick forming part of a lengthy youthful finish. Fabulous drinking now and through 2026+. Definitely a wine of discussion."
95 Point, Outstanding.
