Wine of the Week NZ

Pisa Range Estate Black Poplar Block Pinot Noir 2015, Central Otago, NZD $56

I’ve always been impressed by the silken texture and seductive fruit expression in Pisa Range pinot – this is a fine example of their distinctive style. It has layers of plum, dark cherry and mixed spice characters that continue long after the wine has been swallowed. A seductively ethereal texture adds further appeal. Lovely wine. (Screwcap)
