Three Paddles Martinborough Pinot Noir (2020)

From Nga Waka, this third-tier red is a rewarding, drink-young style. The 2020 vintage (4.5*) offers especially fine value. Estate-grown at three sites, it was matured for 16 months in French oak barriques, and bottled unfined and unfiltered. Full, bright ruby, it is mouthfilling, sweet-fruited and supple, with strong cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing excellent complexity and harmony. Full of drink-young charm, it also has good cellaring potential; best drinking 2023+.
