Whitehaven Marlborough Pinot Noir (2020)

The youthful 2020 vintage (4*) was grown and hand-harvested in the Southern Valleys (52 per cent) and Awatere Valley (48 per cent), and matured for 10-11 months in French oak barriques (25 per cent new). Full, bright ruby, it is fragrant, savoury and supple, with generous, ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing considerable complexity, and obvious potential for cellaring. Best drinking 2024+.
