Maori Point Grand Reserve Professors' Block Central Otago Pinot Noir (2017)

Enticingly perfumed, the 2017 vintage (5*) was estate-grown and hand-harvested at Tarras, matured for two years in four French oak barrels (40 per cent new), and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Bright ruby, it is a distinctive wine, drinking beautifully now, with strong, vibrant cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours, fresh acidity, and a savoury, seamless finish. Best drinking 2023+.
