Brancott Estate Reserve Marlborough Pinot Noir 2020 $19

This pinot is definitely the pumped up kicks where aromatics are concerned. Redcurrant and buckets of raspberry wash across a spicy baseline in the mouth. The acidity is hefty, the tannins are super-smooth – it’s a feel-good, taste-good, commercial style that’ll have the crowds smiling at that next Spring wedding or winter shindig.
