A cracker from Kusuda

Kusuda Pinot Noir 2016, Martinborough, NZD $98

Perfumed pinot noir with the usual Kusuda purity and subtle power, but with a little more structure than usual. Floral, plum, spice and savoury, fresh herb flavours. A supremely elegant wine offering great cellaring potential. (Cork)
