Auntsfield Hawk Hill Southern Valleys Marlborough Pinot Noir (2018)

Already delicious, the savoury 2018 vintage (5*) of this single block red was made solely from the Abel clone of Pinot Noir, hand-picked and matured for 15 months in French oak barriques. Deep ruby, it is mouthfilling and ripely flavoured, with hints of liquorice and nuts, fresh acidity, and excellent depth and complexity. Full of personality, it should be at its best 2022+.
