Brightwater Vineyards Nelson Pinot Noir (2020)

The 2020 vintage (4.5*) was estate-grown and aged in French oak hogsheads (27 per cent new). Full-coloured, it is mouthfilling, savoury and generous, with strong, ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, a hint of herbs, very good complexity and finely balanced tannins. Drink now or cellar.
