Luna Eclipse Martinborough Pinot Noir (2019)

Already highly enjoyable, the 2019 vintage (5*) is a single-vineyard red, hand-harvested from vines planted on the Martinborough Terrace in the early 1990s, matured for a year in French oak puncheons (20 per cent new), and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Full, bright ruby, it is mouthfilling, savoury and supple, with generous, ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, slightly earthy and nutty notes adding complexity, and finely balanced tannins. Best drinking 2023+.
