'Now from Marlborough', highlights a sticker on the front of the graceful, vigorous 2020 vintage (4*) – past vintages of Thornbury Pinot Noir were grown in Central Otago. Offering good value, it is bright ruby, mouthfilling, vibrantly fruity and supple, with generous cherry, plum and spice flavours, finely integrated oak and a smooth, very harmonious finish. Already enjoyable, it should be at its best 2023+.
