Black Cottage Marlborough Pinot Noir (2018)

A very enjoyable drink-young style, the 2018 vintage (3.5*) is a blend of Wairau Valley (mostly) and Awatere Valley grapes, partly oak-aged. Light ruby, it is medium-bodied, vibrant, sweet-fruited and supple, with gentle cherry, plum and spice flavours, fresh acidity and a touch of complexity. (From Two Rivers of Marlborough.)
