Dry River Martinborough Pinot Noir


Dark and densely flavoured, this Martinborough red ranks among New Zealand’s greatest Pinot Noirs. It is grown in three company-owned vineyards – Dry River Estate, Craighall and Lovat – on the Martinborough Terrace, and most of the vines are over 20 years old. Matured for a year in French oak hogsheads (20 to 30 per cent new), it is a slower-developing wine than other New Zealand Pinot Noirs, but matures superbly. The perfumed 2019 vintage (5*) is deep ruby, rich and supple, with vigorous cherry, plum and spice flavours, fresh acidity, and excellent depth and harmony. Best drinking 2025+.
