The Darling, Arnst Marlborough Pinot Noir (2019)

Well worth cellaring, the youthful 2019 vintage (5*) is a single-vineyard red, grown at Renwick, in the Wairau Valley, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Certified organic, it is full-coloured, mouthfilling and sweet-fruited, with vibrant, generous cherry, plum and spice flavours, finely integrated oak, good complexity and obvious potential. Offering fine value, it should be at its best 2024+.
