Hawkshead Central Otago Pinot Noir (2019)

The 2019 vintage (3.5*) was hand-harvested and matured for 10 months in French oak barrels (15 per cent new). Bright ruby, it is freshly scented, medium-bodied and supple, with vibrant cherry, plum, spice and herb flavours, slightly nutty notes, and lively acidity. A graceful red with drink-young charm, it should be at its best 2022+.
