Pinot by moonlight

Luna Eclipse Pinot Noir 2015, Martinborough, NZD $80

New owners of the old Alana vineyard. Big, intense, fleshy wine with sweet black-fleshed plum and dark cherry flavours plus a savoury influence. A fruit bomb style with a lush, featherbed texture plus a seasoning of spicy oak. Very impressive wine. (Screwcap)
