Pinot with a future

Cambridge Road Pinot Noir 2013, Martinborough, NZD $60

Robust, flavoursome pinot noir with red-fleshed plum, dark cherry, spice, anise and nutty oak flavours supported by a backbone of sappy, drying tannins. Stylish and quite complex wine that can be appreciated now but should become even more interesting with bottle age. (Diam)
