Dhall & Nash are honoured to announce the release of Kai Schubert and Marion Deimling’s Prestige Wines:
2015 Marion’s Vineyard Pinot Noir & 2015 Block B Pinot Noir
The 2015 vintage in Wairarapa consisted of a windy spring and wet spell over the New Year that was followed by a hot, dry summer. This led to a smaller more concentrated yield which translated beautifully into the wine.
Due to this lower yield, the wines are more exclusive than ever. We have a tiny allocation available with most of it already spoken for. (Please click the bottles for more info)
2015 Marion’s Vineyard Pinot Noir
Beautiful dark ruby hues, a seductive earthy bouquet, lingering notes of poached Black Doris plums, exotic spice, dark chocolate and fine mineral notes. A composed wine with an entrance of rich Ghana chocolate, fresh dark cherries and five spice. A wonderful earthy concentration, notes of leather and forest floor showing textured tannins and a powerful mineral drive. A wine to be embraced and aged.
“Medium-bodied Pinot Noir with attractive rose petal, cherry, berry and spice flavours. Elegant and quite linear wine with surprising power and length. A smooth-textured Pinot that can be appreciated now but promises more with bottle age.” – Bob Campbell 95 pts
2015 Block B Pinot Noir
Dark ruby hue, a seductive bouquet showing the complexity and a depth of perfumed violets and floral notes, layers of dark luscious cherries and alluring exotic spices wrapping around a savoury earthy heart in Schubert’s classic Block B style. Beautiful, elegant and silky entrance of fresh dark cherries, a seam of exotic spices entwined with physical tannins with a layered powerful core of forest floor, notes of leather and fine of toasted oak. A truly beautiful example which will cellar well over time.
“Moderately dark, even ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the rim with garnet hues. The nose is elegantly proportioned with good depth of ripe, dark-red and black-berried fruits with a core of dark herbs and minerals, unfolding violet floral notes. The nose possesses firmness and fine concentration, revealing liquorice and spices. Medium-full bodied, the palate features rich and mouth-filling flavours of ripe dark-red and black-berried fruits entwined with dark herbs violets, spices and minerals. The wine has a deep, rounded core and the palate shows impressive presence while retaining style. The fruit is supported by fine-grained tannin extraction and fresh, lacy acidity, and the wine carries with good linearity to a long, black-fruited and spicy finish. This is a rich, dark-red and black-
fruited Pinot Noir with herb, spice and mineral notes on a fine, firm-lined palate with impressive structure and presence. Match with lamb, beef and venison dishes.” – Raymond Chan 18.5/20
