Quartz Reef Bendigo Estate Single Vineyard Central Otago Pinot Noir (2019)

Certified organic and biodynamic, the extremely graceful 2018 vintage (5*) was estate-grown at Bendigo, hand-picked and matured for a year in French oak barriques. Deep ruby, it is sweet-fruited and vibrant, with rich cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours, complex and finely poised, and an enticingly scented bouquet. Best drinking 2022+. Showing obvious potential for cellaring, the refined, very youthful 2019 vintage (5*) is bright ruby, fragrant, savoury and supple, with concentrated, ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, fresh acidity and a very harmonious finish. Best drinking 2023+. Certified organic.
