Terrace Edge North Canterbury St Laurent (2018)

Promoted as a 'wild cousin' of Pinot Noir, the 2018 vintage (4*) was hand-picked, fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured for 11 months in French oak casks (20 per cent new). Deep ruby, it has fresh, berryish, spicy aromas, showing some complexity. Medium to full-bodied, with strong, vigorous berry, plum and spice flavours, woven with lively acidity, and supple tannins, it should be at its best mid-2022+.
