Minor fruit bomb

rockburn-pinot-noir-2015Rockburn Pinot Noir 2015, Central Otago, NZD $49.99

Deliciously drinkable pinot noir in a typical (for Rockburn) fruity style, with succulent plum and dark cherry flavours underpinned by subtle spice and oak characters. It really is a very appealing wine that will develop in bottle but is irresistible now. (Screwcap)
