Producer: Lawson Dry Hills
Sourced from the Barnsley and Lawson's vineyards in Marlborough's Waihopai Valley. This wine displays a beautiful deep colour and a wonderfully floral nose.
BEST VALUE - There's lots of attractive cherry fruit here, a savoury hint of dark chocolate and toasty oak. A lively edge and a crisp finish. Ageing Potential: 3-5 Years
The nose is intensely penetrating and tightly packed with primary aromas of ripe dark berry fruits - black cherries, spicy oak and fragrance of violets, nuances of liquorice and plums. Medium-bodied and elegantly proportioned, the flavours of dark berry fruits and black cherries are concentrated. This wine has the firmness of youth with emerging oak carrying through to a long and sustained finish with spicy black cherry flavours. A youthful Pinot Noir with intense black fruits and raciness.
