Ruru Central Otago Pinot Noir (2020)

The 2020 vintage (4*) is a single-vineyard red, estate-grown at Alexandra and matured in French oak casks (10 per cent new). Full, bright ruby, it is fragrant, mouthfilling and vibrantly fruity, with very good depth of fresh, youthful cherry, plum and spice flavours, nutty, savoury notes adding a distinct touch of complexity, and supple tannins. Enjoyable young, it's a drink now or cellaring proposition.
