Luna Silver River Martinborough Pinot Noir (2020)

Designed as a 'reserve wine project', the debut 2016 vintage (5*) was launched in December 2020. Grown at the Eclipse and Blue Rock vineyards, it was matured for 18 months in French oak puncheons and barriques (partly new), and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Full, bright ruby, with a perfumed bouquet, it is an elegant red, mouthfilling and sweet-fruited, with vibrant cherry, plum and spice flavours, savoury notes adding complexity, finely balanced tannins and a lingering finish. Still youthful, it should be at its best 2022+. (Cellar door sales only.)
