Bellbird Spring Block Eight Waipara Valley North Canterbury Pinot Noir (2015)

Drinking well now, the 2015 vintage (4.5*) was matured for a year in French oak barrels (50 per cent new). Ruby-hued, with some development showing, it has a fragrant, savoury bouquet. Mouthfilling, with cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours, it shows excellent complexity, with good tannin backbone.
