Awatere Valley Pinot Noir 2017

Price from: $36.00

Clear

Aromas of red cherries, rose petal, Campari and sage butter integrate with underlying earthy tones. The site where this Pinot was grown is expressed wonderfully, especially on the palate; a delicate minerally texture has ensued from the river-stone built soils. The palate is vibrant and juicy with wonderful balance and a distinguished tannin structure. A gem from a fantastic vintage for the Awatere Valley.
