Butterworth Pinot Noir 2020, Martinborough

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 11-Oct-2023
Moderately deep ruby with a purple hue, lighter on edge. The nose is rich and mesmerising with aromas of earth, savoury herbs, black plum, dark cherry and subtle spices. Medium-bodied, black plum and cherry aromas entwined with rich floral, thyme, liquorice, nutmeg, black pepper and earthy minerals. The mouthfeel is silky with fine-grained supple tannins, unveiling spices and herbs overlying a long length and depth of sweet fruit. Lacy acidity carries liquorice and orange bitters to a sustained, elegant finish. This broody Pinot Noir shows depth and length of fruit and herbs with elegance and savoury, earthy details. Match with tea-smoked duck and mushroom stew over the next 5-7 years. 14% alc. 19/20 pts (95 pts) Oct 2023 RRP $55
