Brightwater Vineyards Te Kāhu Nelson Pinot Noir 2016 $26.99

Three years on from harvest and the wine is taking on a lovely brick-red hue and aromas that lead you down the wild side of the hedge. Named after the native harrier hawk which patrols the vineyards of Gary and Valley Neale, it’s softly savoury and squealing with wild cherry and berry flavours, dried herb notes, fresh acidity and solid, earthy textures to finish.
