Pencarrow Martinborough Pinot Noir 2016

14-Aug-2017
The Pencarrow label has proven itself to be one of the most successful and popular second brands in Martinborough, with many of the wines, especially the Pinot Noir performing exceptionally well at wine shows. It is the situation where certain quantities of the premium fruit are required for the very top label, and what is remaining, which may not be insubstantial, goes into the next tier. But also playing its role is that the secondary tier is made in a more fruit-focused and accessible style, which offers more immediate enjoyment, whereas a flagship wine may need cellaring to show its best. These qualities of fruit accessibility, balance and harmony not only strike a chord with wine judges, but also the consumer. Here, I review the new 2016 Pencarrow Martinborough Pinot Noir. www.palliser.co.nz
