The Better Half, Marlborough Pinot Noir (2019)

Drinking well in its youth, the 2019 vintage (3.5*) is from George Elworthy, husband of Jules Taylor. Deep ruby, it is mouthfilling, sweet-fruited and supple, with strong, ripe fruit flavours to the fore, earthy and spicy notes adding a touch of complexity, finely balanced acidity and a smooth finish.
