Nga Waka Martinborough Pinot Noir (2020)

Already delicious, the 2020 vintage (5*) was estate-grown at three sites, matured for 16 months in French oak barriques (20 per cent new), and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Full, bright ruby, it is mouthfilling, very sweet-fruited, savoury and supple, with generous, ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing excellent complexity and harmony. A very 'complete' wine, it should break into full stride 2023+. Scheduled for release in early 2022, it offers irresistible value.
