An ‘A’ for Block B

Schubert Block B Pinot Noir 2015, Wairarapa, NZD $65.95

Quite intense yet elegant pinot noir with an intriguing mix of savoury, spice, herb, cherry and berry flavours that show a strong sense of place. Rich and quite textural wine, with power and lengthy finish. This is a complex red that promises to develop even more complexity with bottle age. (Cork)
