Bald Hills 3 Acres Bannockburn Central Otago Pinot Noir 2018 $32

Well if this isn’t just the prettiest, ruby-hued thing to sip! Bannockburn is basically a desert, a dry, beautifully alien, rocky moonscape of a place, so if you’ve ever been there, you’ll completely understand why this vineyard is named Bald Hills. With a nose bursting with earthy, lush, forest floor undergrowth notes, red cherry and black tea and a palate that’s silky-textured, studded with redcurrant and rosehip flavours – it’s a pretty darn nice drink.
