Tohu Whenua Matua Nelson Pinot Noir 2017 $34.99

3 clones of pinot noir abel, 777, 115 are used in the makeup of this wine which has huge aromatics.  Wild red berries, woolly, lanolin, sandalwood, spice, hints of bay, super-fresh acidity and the tannins are stalky and solid.  Warming and smooth, black olive and some soy notes seeping through alongside mushroomy nuances.  Lightly coloured, yet full of flavour – a good result from a tricky vintage.
