Wine of the Week NZ

Amisfield RKV Reserve Pinot Noir 2015, Central Otago, NZD $120

Produced from low cropping vines on a rocky section of Amisfield’s Block 1 vineyard in the Pisa subregion. Generously proportioned pinot noir with intense plum, dark cherry, berry and subtle floral and violet flavours. Seductively drinkable now but with obvious cellaring potential. (Screwcap)
