Luna Silver River Martinborough Pinot Noir (2018)

Designed as a 'reserve wine project', the 2018 vintage (5*) was harvested from the oldest vines in the Eclipse and Blue Rock vineyards, matured in French oak puncheons (50 per cent new), and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Ruby hued, it is enticingly perfumed, full-bodied, sweet-fruited and vigorous, with savoury, nutty notes adding complexity and good tannin backbone. Already delicious, it's well worth cellaring to 2023+.
