Pinot with purity

Kusuda Pinot Noir 2015, Martinborough, NZD $95

Supremely elegant pinot noir with floral, red rose, cherry, spice, anise and nutty oak flavours. The wine is even more impressive texturally with great purity and fine “talcum powder” tannins. A lingering finish demonstrates subtle power. (Cork)
