Aurum Organic Central Otago Pinot Noir (2018)

Certified organic, the impressive 2018 vintage (5*) was estate-grown and hand-harvested at Lowburn, matured for a year in French oak casks (20 per cent new), and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Deeply coloured, it is fragrant and full-bodied, with concentrated, youthful cherry, plum and spice flavours, savoury notes adding complexity, and a finely structured finish. A very age-worthy red, it should be at its best 2022+.
