Black Estate Netherwood North Canterbury Pinot Noir (2017)

Certified organic, the characterful 2017 vintage (4.5*) was hand-picked from ungrafted vines in the first hill-grown vineyard in North Canterbury, established in 1986. Fermented with indigenous yeasts, it was matured for a year in seasoned oak barrels, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Full and fairly youthful in colour, it is medium-bodied, with rich, plummy, spicy, slightly herbal and nutty flavours, showing excellent complexity, gentle tannins, and a finely poised, harmonious finish. Best drinking 2022+.
