The delicious 2017 vintage (5*) is a single-vineyard Pinot Noir, estate-grown at Te Muna, on the edge of Martinborough. Hand-picked, it was fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured for 11 months in French oak barriques (28 per cent new). Deep, bright ruby, it is mouthfilling and savoury, with generous cherry, plum and spice flavours, oak complexity, and ripe, supple tannins. A very refined, youthful, harmonious red, it's well worth cellaring to 2022+.
