Judge Rock Alexandra Central Otago Pinot Noir (2017)

Still youthful, the 2017 vintage (4.5*) is a highly fragrant red, estate-grown and matured in French oak casks (30 per cent new). Bright ruby, it is medium to full-bodied, with concentrated cherry, plum and spice flavours, complex and savoury, and a well-structured finish. Best drinking 2022+.
