DRINK OF THE WEEK
15th April 2019
Finest Marlborough Pinot Noir
Drinker Rating 90
This is a perfect springtime or Easter wine. The combination of light red berry fruit and savoury spice seems to sum up the season, bright and fresh.
New Zealand produces some excellent pinot noir, the cooler climate means the grapes ripen more slowly this adds complexity and softness to the wine. In this example there's a really nice use of oak, not overbearing but enhancing the spicy black pepper and floral notes.
Super stuff for a happy Easter.
