Jackson Estate Gum Emperor Single Vineyard Waihopai Valley Marlborough Pinot Noir 2014

Lovely now, this mature red is Marlborough Pinot Noir at its best.   Estate-grown and hand-picked from ‘old’ vines in the Waihopai Valley, it is multi-faceted, fragrant and supple, with rich cherry, plum and spice flavours, nutty and complex.  Very savoury and mellow, it’s probably at its peak in 2023.
