Tiki Estate ‘Koro’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2010

13-Jul-2012
The Tiki Estate brand has taken a step up over the last year with a clear definition of labelling and tiers, as well as styles that represent regionality and sites. The company's Wairau Alpine Valley vineyards on the western edge of the Marlborough growing area is no doubt the engine room for Royce and Sue McKean, and produce the specialist ‘Alpine Valley' tier as well as providing the majority of the fruit for the Tiki Estate wines. However it is the single vineyard expressions that are special, being from the home ‘Waiata' vineyard in Waipara, and the Pinot Noir from Sue McKean's father Denis Marshall's site in Gibbston, Central Otago. They sit at the apex of the offerings. I review the new release ‘Koro' Pinot Noir 2010, the flagship for Tiki Estate. www.tikiwine.com
