Main Divide North Canterbury Pinot Noir (2020)

A consistently rewarding, great-value red from Pegasus Bay. The 2020 vintage (4.5*) was grown at Waipara and matured for 18 months in French oak barrels. Deep ruby, it is fragrant and supple, with very generous cherry, plum and spice flavours, finely balanced oak and excellent harmony. Already delicious, it should be at its best 2023+.
