Cloudy Bay Te Wahi Central Otago Pinot Noir (2017)

The 2017 vintage (5*) was estate-grown in the Calvert Vineyard at Bannockburn and Northburn Vineyard, on the east bank of Lake Dunstan. Fermented with indigenous yeasts, it was matured for a year in French oak barrels (30 per cent new). A powerful, softly seductive red, it is deeply coloured and mouthfilling, concentrated and supple, with rich cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours, youthful, and very harmonious. Best drinking 2022+.
