Black Quail Central Otago Pinot Noir 2019 $49

This new release from the small, Bannockburn  vineyard owned by Rod and Mirani Keillor is garnet-red, scented with soft spices and subtle rhubarb, raspberry and cherry notes and lightly-styled on the palate. If you’re looking for a punch-in-the-face pinot then you’ve come to the wrong cul-de-sac my friend, this vintage is a softer, pillowy example with a suede-like finish that’ll suit sipping even in the early hours of the day.
