The Flying Winemaker, Wairarapa Pinot Noir (2019)

From Gladstone Vineyard, the partly estate-grown 2019 vintage (4*) was matured for 10 months in French oak casks (25 per cent new). Bright ruby, with a fragrant, fresh, spicy bouquet, it is mouthfilling, with generous, ripe fruit flavours, oak complexity and supple tannins. Delicious young.
