The Wrekin Needle’s Eye Marlborough Pinot Noir 2015 $55
Sourced from the now certified organic Wrekin vineyard in Marlborough’s southern valleys, this Gold Medal-winning pinot noir has, despite its seven-year age, an incredibly fresh, youthful structure and buckets of florals, exotic spices and cherry-centric layers on the nose and palate. Vibrant, yet deliciously complex, this wine is really starting to hit its straps where character is concerned. The tannins are soothing and the finish is long and lithe. Maturing nicely.
