90+ Pts Lisa Perrotti-Brown - Robert Parker's Wine Advocate
"Pale ruby-purple in color, the 2010 'Paladin' Pinot Noir has a nose of ripe cherries, pomegranate and warm cranberries with nuances of forest floor and cinnamon stick. Medium bodied, the ample red berry and earth laced flash is well supported by a low to medium level of finely grained tannins and balanced acidity, finishing with good persistence. Drink this one now to 2016." (10/12)

"Wild berry and fresh herb flavors initially appear trim and a bit tight, but on the finish open up to graceful, delicate nuances of thyme, mineral, floral and fresh cherry details. All balanced and refreshing. Drink now through 2020. 1,450 cases made. -MW" (05/12)
"Staete Landt 2010 Pinot Noir has a deep cherry colour and an attractive lifted and complex aroma. Wild violets, dark cherries, dried herbs and earthy notes burst out of the glass. The palate is intense with blackcurrants and allspice being balanced by gentle tannins and clean acidity. Given time in the glass it develops more savoury notes and a soft texture showing the layers to the wine. It is drinking very well now but will continue to develop over the next 10 years."
"The Staete Landt Estate is set in the heart of Marlborough's 'Golden Mile' in Rapaura. Soil types within the 52 acre Estate range from river deposits to stonier river gravel. Utilising these different soil types to their optimum potential, we planted 12 individual parcels of Pinot Noir, each providing a specific flavour component to the ensuing wine." -Winery
"At Staete Landt we produce wine for the top end of the market, which is the segment of exclusive and (super) premium wines. With our team of passionate wine people we are highly committed to our land, our soils, our vines and our wines. We look after our vines and resources with great dedication in order to make wines that truly represent our unique terroir on the 'Golden Mile'. The 'Golden Mile' is the name given to a special strip of land in Marlborough located on the old riverbed soils in the sub region of Rapaura. This relatively small area of land has the most optimum wine growing conditions due to its unique microclimate. Some of the oldest and most famous Marlborough vineyards are planted in this area."
"When Abel Tasman first discovered New Zealand back in 1642, the name he gave to this land mass was 'Staete Landt' which means 'Land (discovered in honour) of the Governors (Staete) (of the Dutch Republic)'. More than 350 years on, 'Staete Landt' is the name for an emerging wine company founded by Ruud Maasdam and Dorien Vermaas, originally born in the Netherlands. The link between their new home and New Zealand's discovery by one of their predecessors, was obvious: the perfect combination of their heritage and their future."
"They uncovered a copy of the original map drawn by Abel Tasman. This very first and original map of New Zealand strongly influenced the label design for Staete Landt wines. Abel Tasman sailed the West Coast of New Zealand and quite accurately mapped the coastlines. On his return trip to Batavia Abel Tasman also discovered Tasmania (Van Diemen Land), Fiji and Tonga. Upon his return to the Dutch Republic it was decided to change Staete Landt to its present name 'New Zealand' (Nova Zeelandia)." -Winery
