Kelly Washington Gibbston Central Otago Pinot Noir (2017)

From Auckland-based Tamra Kelly (formerly chief winemaker at Yealands Estate), the 2017 vintage (5*) is a powerful, single-vineyard red. Fragrant, sturdy and savoury, with deep, ripe flavours of plums, spices, herbs and nuts, it’s already a lovely mouthful, but well worth cellaring.
