Pyramid Valley Earth Smoke Pinot Noir 2016 (New Zealand)
There’s no mistaking this wine has a distinctive bouquet. It’s earthy, steely and haunting with aromas of soil, fresh and pressed flowers, tea and a compote of mixed red berry fruits. Dry on the palate with silty soil and fine tannin textures, balanced acidity and flavours reminiscent of the bouquet. A thinking man’s (okay person’s) Pinot Noir, with a lengthy & thought provoking finish. Drink now and through 2022.
