Fickle Mistress Central Otago Pinot Noir (2020)

A drink-young charmer, the 2020 vintage (3.5*) was French oak-aged for eight months. Full, bright ruby, it is a vibrantly fruity, medium to full-bodied red, with good depth of ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing some savoury complexity, and a well-rounded finish. Best drinking mid-2022+.
