Pyramid Valley Earth Smoke Pinot Noir (2019)

Estate-grown on an east-facing block at Waikari, in North Canterbury, the 2019 vintage (5*) was matured for 16 months in French oak barrels, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. A very age-worthy red, it is bright ruby, with a fragrant, savoury bouquet. Medium to full-bodied, it has deep, ripe fruit flavours of cherries, plums and spices, finely integrated oak, and excellent complexity and structure. Best drinking 2024+.
