Dark and moody and broody to look at, and to sniff, and to taste, and to talk to your mates about, this pinot noir has power and solid, savoury punchiness. Cherry, leather, baked rhubarb and boatloads of rosehip tea – it’s all here in a pinot noir for the people. The flavour concentration is bold and juicy and ready to roll. If this is an indication of Marlborough pinot noir from 2019, then I’m a happy girl. Clean, snappy, bursting with red fruits, it’s a smooth, juicy, darn pleasurable pinot noir for any occasion.
