Paddy Borthwick Right Hand Wairarapa Pinot Noir (2020)

Estate-grown at Gladstone, this small-volume wine (1450 bottles in 2020) is made by Paddy Borthwick, an 'intuitive, impulsive and thoughtful', right-handed vigneron. The 2020 vintage (5*) a classy young red. Full, bright ruby, it is fragrant, mouthfilling and very savoury, with deep, ripe cherry, plum, spice and nutty oak flavours, showing excellent richness, complexity and harmony, and a smooth, finely textured finish. Drink 2024+.
