Palliser Estate The Luminary Pinot Noir 2020, Martinborough

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 17-Jan-2023
Light ruby-red, even colour throughout. The nose is elegant and enticing, with aromas of dark cherry and black raspberry melded with hints of herbs and spice. Medium-full bodied, lush aromas of dark cherry and black raspberry intermixed with liquorice, dried thyme, black pepper, nutmeg and a caramel, toasty note on the finish. The fruit is generous with elegance and balanced acidity; dried herbs and spice added interest. Grainy tannins provide a powdery mouthfeel and a fragrant lingering finish. This is a satisfying Pinot Noir with generous flavour and texture. Match with lamb koftas and mushroom risotto over the next 3 years. 14% alc. 18/20 pts (90 pts) Jan 2023 RRP $30
