Pinot Noir 2016 – Black Market Deal #35222
- Medium bodied
Marlborough pinot noir - that wine that those in the know know all about. This one is handpicked from separate vineyard blocks, fermented in individual vats and blended up before bottling. This allows for the winemaker to see how each parcel develops before putting together the perfect amalgamation in the bottle. On the nose, there’s vibrant fruit, cocoa and cooking spices. The palate, supported by fine-grained tannins, is all raspberry, strawberry and herbs. There’s a touch of oak for structure, but it’s subtle. All in all, an excellent mesh of wine.
