Wine of the Week NZ
Te Whare Ra Single Vineyard 5182 Pinot Noir 2013, Marlborough, NZD $75
Aromatic pinot noir with bright cherry, raspberry, plum and spice and anise flavours. This elegant and seductively drinkable wine doesn’t lack power but delivers it with great subtlety. Silken texture and a very lengthy finish.
