Brightwater Vineyards Lord Rutherford Nelson Pinot Noir (2017)

The 2017 vintage (4.5*) was estate-grown, fermented with indigenous yeasts, matured for 11 months in French oak barriques (25 per cent new), and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Fragrant, rich and complex, it is sweet-fruited and vibrant, with deep cherry, plum and spice flavours, fine-grained tannins, and a lengthy finish.
