Ruru Reserve Central Otago Pinot Noir (2020)

The 2020 vintage (4.5*) of this estate-grown, single-vineyard Alexandra red was matured in French oak barrels (30 per cent new). Full-coloured, it is mouthfilling, with strong, ripe plum/spice flavours, showing very good complexity, slightly earthy notes, and a finely poised, persistent finish. Still very youthful, it's already approachable, but well worth cellaring to 2023+.
