Luna Blue Rock Vineyard Martinborough Pinot Noir (2018)

From hill-grown vines planted in 1995 and 1996, the 2018 vintage (4.5*) was matured for a year in French oak barriques and puncheons (15 per cent new), and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Ruby-hued, it is an attractively perfumed, medium to full-bodied, graceful red with fresh, ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, savoury notes adding complexity, and a lengthy finish. Well worth cellaring.
