Wine Of The Week NZ

devotus-reserve-pinot-noir-2015Devotus Reserve Pinot Noir 2015, Martinborough, NZD $72

Made from the Pommard clone with 15% whole bunches in the ferment. Unlike the regular label this pinot noir has the weight and concentration to carry the structure of ripe tannins. It’s a big, dense red with plum, liquorice, dark berry and a suggestion of chocolate/mocha flavours. It has a promising future. (Cork)
