Black Estate Netherwood North Canterbury Pinot Noir (2020)

Certified organic, the refined, very harmonious 2020 vintage (5*) was hand-harvested from ungrafted vines in the first hill-grown vineyard in North Canterbury, established in 1986. Fermented with indigenous yeasts, it was barrel-aged, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Deep, bright ruby, it is a very elegant, medium to full-bodied red, with concentrated, ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, complex, savoury and supple. A top vintage, it should be at its best 2024+.
