Mondillo Central Otago Pinot Noir 2019

Likely to be long-lived, this concentrated, very youthful red was estate-grown and hand-harvested at Bendigo and matured in French oak barrels (30 per cent new). Deep, bright ruby, it is a powerful wine, with bold cherry and plum flavours, finely integrated oak adding complexity, and ripe, supple tannins. Best drinking 2023+.
