Wine of the Week NZ

Terra Sancta Jackson’s Block Pinot Noir 2016, Central Otago, NZD $49.95

Attractively perfumed pinot noir with dark cherry, violet, plum, thyme, anise and spicy oak flavours. The wine has appealing purity. It is concentrated but at the same time has been made with a light touch. Accessible now but should develop well in bottle. (Screwcap)
