Bald Hills Bannockburn Single Vineyard Central Otago Pinot Noir (2016)

Maturing very gracefully, the 2016 vintage (5* ) was estate-grown and matured for a year in French oak barriques (33 per cent new). Still unfolding, it is full-bodied and vibrantly fruity, with ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, nutty, savoury notes adding complexity, fresh acidity, and good tannin backbone. Best drinking 2022+.
