Astrolabe Comelybank Vineyard Waihopai Valley Marlborough Pinot Noir (2019)

The powerful 2019 vintage (5*) was grown in the lower Waihopai Valley, hand-harvested and matured for 10 months in French oak casks (25 per cent new). Boldly coloured, it is a fresh, very youthful, almost Syrah-like red, with dense, plummy, spicy flavours, a hint of liquorice, and obvious potential. Best drinking 2023+.
