Blackenbrook Family Reserve Nelson Pinot Noir (2019)

The bold 2019 vintage (5*) was estate-grown, hand-harvested and matured for a year in French oak barriques (30 per cent new). Deeply coloured, it is a powerful, sturdy, highly concentrated red, with rich, very youthful plum and spice flavours, oak complexity, and a fairly firm finish. A 'masculine' style of Pinot Noir, it will be long-lived; best drinking 2023+.
