Palliser Estate Martinborough Pinot Noir (2020)

This is typically an enticingly perfumed, notably elegant and harmonious red. The 2020 vintage (5*) is deep ruby, mouthfilling, savoury and supple, with concentrated cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours, impressive complexity, silky tannins and a finely poised finish. A youthful, quietly classy wine with obvious potential, it's already highly approachable, but well worth cellaring to 2023 onwards.
