Celestial pinot

Archangel Pinot Noir 2015, Central Otago, NZD $37

Just released. Tasted in a vertical of three vintages to 2015 this was my favourite wine. More intense and weightier than the others it is richer and riper with a complex mix of berry, plum, spice and subtle oak. Should develop well but delicious now. (Screwcap)
