From leading artisan winegrower Mt Difficulty in Central Otago, New Zealand comes the Bannockburn Pinot Noir 2019.
On the nose are vibrant aromas of cherries and berries, complemented by a hint of spice and oak. On the palate is an energetic burst of flavours, including red cherry, strawberry and black plum. The wine finishes with a firm, fine tannins that linger on the palate.
Drink now or let the wine improve for up to 15 years in optimal cellaring conditions.
93 Points – James Suckling
“Inviting aromas of pitted red cherries, morels and hibiscus tea. Medium- to full-bodied with lovely spicy complexity. Silky tannins guide the way for the well-ripened red fruit, alongside ground spice, paprika, nutmeg, coriander and fennel seed. Sustainable. Drink or hold.”
