Ma Maison Cuvee Jade Pinot Noir 2015, Martinborough, NZD $88

Deeply-scented and flavoursome pinot noir with red-fleshed plum, floral, red rose, dark cherry, star anise, liquorice and spicy oak flavours. Fruit-and-alcohol sweetness is perfectly balanced by fine tannins to give a long and drying finish. Accessible now but with good ageing potential. (Diam)
