X-factor pinot

Dog Point Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016, Marlborough, NZD $47

Fragrant, aromatic pinot noir with seductive floral, cherry and subtle spicy flavours. Delicately succulent wine that has clearly been made with a light touch but has impressive power and a lengthy finish. This wine has the X-factor – every sip is even better than the last. (Screwcap)
