Saint Clair Pioneer Block 22 Barn Block Marlborough Pinot Noir (2019)

From a relatively warm site at the base of the hills on the south side of the Wairau Valley, the 2019 vintage (4.5*) is a boldly coloured, savoury red, likely to be long-lived. A powerful, youthful wine, it has strong, ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, a slightly earthy streak, and very good complexity. Best drinking 2023+.
