Nga Waka Lease Block Pinot Noir 2022, Martinborough

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 08-Jan-2024
Moderately light crimson with a red brick hue, even colour throughout. The bouquet is elegantly presented with enticing aromas of cherry and black raspberry, intermixing hibiscus and leading to an amalgam of spice and herbs. Medium-bodied, aromas of black cherry, raspberry and semi-dried plum entwined with hibiscus, liquorice, cinnamon, nutmeg, unfolding thyme and mineral, earthy elements. Silky tannins lightly coated the palate, supported by lacy acidity, showing depth and elegance. Along with herbs and spices, elevate and linger to a long, mesmerising closing. This graceful Pinot Noir is well-made with harmonious aromas and layers and an enticing lingering on a silky palate. Match with smoked duck and roasted lamb rack over the next 6-8 years. 14% alc. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Jan 2024 RRP $50
