A pleasing pinot

Nga Waka Lease Block Pinot Noir 2016, Martinborough, NZD $50

Elegant, vibrant pinot noir with cherry, red berry and anise and spice flavours. Youthful wine that promises to develop well with bottle age, although it is appealing now. A lengthy finish suggests power that is delivered with appealing subtlety. (Screwcap)
