Reviews

Bewertung Rippon Tinker’s Field Mature Vine Pinot Noir 2020James Suckling (JamesSuckling.com): 99/100 & #1 Top 100 Wines of New Zealand 2023. ... my New Zealand Wine of the Year from the island nation. It was the amazing texture of the single-vineyard pinot with its superbly polished tannins that run vertically down the wine that blew me away. It seems almost endless in its length. Aromas of raspberries and plums with forest fruits and violets. Orange blossom, too. Medium- to full-bodied. Superbly polished tannins that run vertically down the wine and take you very deep and long. It's seemingly endless. Dark strawberry and raspberry and hints of terra cotta and dark stones. It's complete and moving to taste now. Drinkable even now, but try to be patient. Best after 2026, but already stunning.

 

Bewertung Rippon Tinker's Field Mature Vine Pinot Noir 2020 Erin Larkin, Robert Parker's Wine Advocate: 97/100. The 2020 Tinker's Field Mature Vine Pinot Noir is, as per usual, restrained on the nose but concentrated and driven in the mouth. This is a wine immune to hyperbole, and so eloquently of its place, that it is often a wine I am proud to show internationally. It never fails. The tannins are sleek but totally within the wine. The tannins are nely milled, ductile, gray in every respect and delicate but not brittle. The 2020 seems more open-armed than the 2019 before it (not better, not worse - just different), and it is making for pleasurable drinking here today. A beauty. Drink Date: 2023 - 2040.

 

Tasting note

Subtle and complex aromas of cherries, strawberries, rasberries, plums, violets. The palet mirror the aromas on the nose. A medium+ body with firm, tight, linear, fine-grained tannins. Goes on for a super long time.

Additional information

Type: red wine

Varietal: 100% Pinot Noir

Food match: Match with lamb dishes and Mediterranean cuisine.

Vineyard site: Lake Wanaka, Central Otago, New Zealand. A unique parcel within Rippon, Tinker’s Field is a gentle, north facing slope formed by an ancient ejection cone of coarse schist gravels. Tinker’s Field is home to the oldest vines on the property and is named after Rippon’s visionary founder, Rolfe Mills (Tink to his friends), and the land that he had dreamed of farming since childhood.

Winemaking: Picked by hand into small, 10kg cases allowing the fruit to arrive at the winery's sorting table undamaged and intact. Picked and fermented separately in 2-tonne stainless-steel fermenters. Each parcel is fermented and matured apart before blending. 20% whole cluster. The winery’s resident yeast population (non-inoculated) took 8-10 days to complete cuvaison. The ferments reached temperatures between 12-30° Celsius. 10 months of new (21%)  to 4 year old French oak barrels. The malolactic fermentation went through unaided (non-inoculated) in springtime; it was then racked back into barrel and allowed a second winter in neutral barrels before being run directly into bottle without filtering or fining. Total time in barrel: 18 months.
