Misha's Vineyard Cantata Central Otago Pinot Noir (2019)

Designed principally for 'on-premise' sale in restaurants, this label offers consistently good value. Estate-grown at Bendigo, the 2019 vintage (4.5*) was fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured for a year in French oak hogsheads (17 per cent new). Already highly enjoyable, it is bright ruby, savoury, vibrant and supple, with generous cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours, showing excellent ripeness and complexity. Best drinking 2022+.
