Carrick Unravelled Organic Central Otago Pinot Noir (2020)

Bargain-priced, the 2020 vintage (4.5*) of this organically certified red does not claim Bannockburn origin on its labels, but is "essentially a declassification of wine from the Carrick vineyards" in the district. Offering great value, it was matured for eight months in French oak barriques (7 per cent new). Full-coloured and mouthfilling, it has concentrated, vibrant cherry, plum and spice flavours, nutty and savoury notes adding complexity, and good tannin support. A fruit-packed, very ageworthy red, it should break into full stride 2023+.
