Pinot that rocks

Grasshopper Rock Earnscleugh Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015, Central Otago, NZD $34

Attractively scented pinot noir with juicy cherry, plum, mineral and spice flavours. Subtle sweet fruits are perfectly balanced by fine, ripe tannins. An elegant, supple wine that should age gracefully. Will benefit from aeration.
