Supple and stylish

Black Estate Netherwood Pinot Noir 2015, North Canterbury, NZD $65

Tight, fresh and vibrant pinot noir with floral, violet, cherry, berry and subtle spicy flavours. A supple wine that’s elegant rather than blockbuster, and all the better for it. Can be appreciated now but should develop well with bottle age. (Screwcap)
