Ward Valley Estate Series Mt Victoria Block Pinot Noir 2022, Marlborough

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 01-Jul-2024
Light ruby-red, even colour throughout. This has a soft and engaging bouquet with aromas of strawberry, cherry, dusty spice and a hint of mocha. Medium-bodied, aromas of strawberry and cherry are bright, elevated by mocha, cinnamon, nutmeg and a subtle hint of earth. Sandy smooth tannin lightly coasted the palate, showcasing primary fruit and spice. A charming, inviting Pinot Noir shines with fruit and toasty details, lending a lightly savoury, elegant closing. Match with pork and lamb koftas over the next 3-4 years. Fermented in open-top fermenters to 13.5% alc, then aged in new and seasoned French oak barriques. 18/20 pts (90 pts) Jul 2024 RRP $24.99
