Pinot with potential

Luna Blue Rock Pinot Noir 2016, Martinborough, NZD $50

Moderately dense yet elegant pinot noir with Black Doris plum, dark cherry, anise, spice and nutty oak flavours. A bright, high energy wine that’s reasonably accessible now but will clearly benefit from bottle age. (Cork)
