Cameron Douglas MS rates Mora Albi

There’s a whisper of colour in the appearance of this wine front some brief contact with the skins. This is not a Rose expression, it’s a white Pinot Noir made with whole bunches, extended time on lees and some time in older barrels.

Joelle Thomson - Kolo Pinot Noir Wine of the Week

I have been tasting my way through a long line up of Pinot Noirs to write an extensive annual report that I have written for Drinksbiz magazine for the past 14 years. This year's report includes Pinot Noirs that are better than ever and that is the tip of the iceberg. Here is a wine that absolutely shines now, thanks to being intentionally held back by the winery, which had the view that sharing a beautifully aged wine would shine another light on Pinot Noir from the deep south of New Zealand and the world.

Bob Campbell MW features 2019 Vale Pinot Noir as "Buy of the Week"

Bob Campbell MW from The Real Review has featured Mora 2019 Vale Pinot Noir as the "Buy of the Week."

He rated this wine 94 points with the comments "Seductively fruity pinot noir with cassis, black cherry, blackberry, wild thyme, floral/violet and spice/anise flavours. Deliciously drinkable now but with the potential to develop well with bottle age."

Top drops of the week... Akarua and Mora Pinot Noirs

Talk about impressive Pinot Noir. Bold, dark and full bodied but soft, silky and lithely delicate in style too. This is a dry, powerful Pinot Noir with red plum aromas leading into a refreshing, multi layered flavoursome wine with depths of aroma and a long finish. Every sip lingers.
