Butterworth Layline Martinborough Pinot Noir (2018)

Estate-grown at Te Muna, the 2018 vintage (*) was hand-picked and matured for nine months in French oak casks (25 per cent new). Bright ruby, it is mouthfilling, with satisfying depth of ripe, cherryish, plummy, spicy, slightly nutty flavours, showing good complexity and harmony. Best drinking 2022+.
