Rich and complex

Dry River Pinot Noir 2016, Martinborough, NZD $95

Typically ripe, concentrated Dry River Pinot Noir, with an array of flavours from fresh herb and floral through to the riper end of the spectrum. Rich, warming and quite complex wine with weight and structure. As good as it is now the wine is likely to respond well to cellaring. (Cork)
