Julicher Martinborough Pinot Noir 2014 $45

It’s like inhaling the interior of a horse float, just after all the hay and other ‘stuff’ has been swept out.  It’s leathery and sweaty and feral, yet underpinned with wild strawberry, cherry and a hint of rhubarb.  Plush, plump and so incredibly smooth, it’s quite a gorgeous thing indeed.  Produced by Wim Julicher and Sue Darling, it’s velvety and edged with redcurrant.
