Subtle power

Schubert Marion’s Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015, Wairarapa, NZD $55

Medium-bodied pinot noir with attractive rose petal, cherry, berry and spice flavours. Elegant and quite linear wine, with surprising power and length. A smooth-textured pinot that can be appreciated now but promises more with bottle age. (Cork)
