Dog Point Vineyard Marlborough Pinot Noir (2018)

This classy, finely structured red is estate-grown on the south side of the Wairau Valley, hand-picked and matured for 18 months in French oak barriques (35 per cent new in 2018). The 2018 vintage (5*) is fragrant, mouthfilling and supple, with rich, vibrant cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing excellent complexity and harmony. Still youthful, it's already delicious and likely to be at its best 2023+. Certified organic.
