Bald Hills Single Vineyard Central Otago Pinot Noir 2016 $46

Aged in 33% new French oak for 12 months, this incredibly floral, fruit saturated pinot noir creates an immediate impression and brings the grins from the first sip.  Youthful and buoyant and bursting with wild cherry, smoked spices and silky textures.  It possesses a lift of truffle and rhubarb crumble characters cling to the edges.  It’s designed for the long haul but is a delicious thing to sip now, so get amongst it while you can because only small amounts were produced.
