Te Kairanga Runholder Martinborough Pinot Noir 2017 $28

I think this could very well be my favourite vintage of Runholder.  Plush, lush and packed with flavour, it roars with cherry, cranberry, rosehip tea and layers of earthy cocoa characters on the palate.  While it’s slippery and silky to sip, it also has powdery, emery-like tannings that accentuate the length of flavour.  Good stuff.
