Subtle Central pinot

Chard Farm Mason Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014, Central Otago, NZD $74

Elegant and ethereal pinot noir with strawberry, cherry, floral and subtle spice flavours. Subtle sweetness and impressive purity – at first it seems quite light but a long and linear finish demonstrates real power. Delicious now but with potential. (Screwcap)
