Ostler Waitaki Valley Pinot Noir (2018)

The 2018 vintage (4*) is a sub-regional Pinot Noir, "from three distinctly different vineyards." Light ruby, with a hint of development, it is strongly varietal, with moderately concentrated cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours, oak-aging complexity, supple tannins and a very harmonious finish. It's drinking well now.
