Nikau Point Reserve Marlborough Pinot Noir (2020)

Priced sharply, the youthful 2020 vintage (2.5*) was estate-grown. Full, bright ruby, it is mouthfilling, with fresh, vibrant fruit flavours that show good depth, but lack any real complexity. An easy-drinking red, it's priced right. Best drinking mid-2022+.
