Blackenbrook Family Reserve Nelson Pinot Noir 2020 $44

This new vintage does not disappoint. Bursting with vibrant, forest floor lushness, black tea, tamarillo and taut leather layers on the nose, it opens up in the glass to reveal a solid core of black cherry, cranberry and raspberry. The mouthfeel is ripe and clean with lovely measured acidity, meaning it’s soothing and smooth to sip, floral and fruit-centric.
