Brightwater Vineyards Lord Rutherford Pinot Noir 2017, Nelson
A very attractive bouquet of Pinot Noir with aromas of sweet red berry fruits and roses, a smoky toasty wood layer with whispers of tobacco and vanilla spice. Complex, fresh and youthful. Quite fleshy and vibrant on the palate with flavours of strawberry and red plum, some cherry then layers of wood spices and sweetness. Fine tannins, balanced acidity with a long, generous and persistent finish. A delicious wine with great core of fruit, lengthy, balanced and well made. Drink now and through 2024.
