Platinum - Best in Show: Best in Show
100% Pinot Noir
Deep yet clear garnet-red in colour. Juicy, spicy, forthright plum and pomegranate fruits with some added floral intrigue, too: complex and commanding. Ample rounded, bright fruits on the palate, the plum and pomegranate now sweetened by a little cherry and strawberry. The oak is submissive, as are the soft tannins, allowing the fruit to sing out with full Central Otago force. 2019-2026.
