Black Estate Netherwood Pinot Noir 2016 North Canterbury
Really nice bouquet of Pinot with aromas of roses and brown baking spices, a complex organic mineral and leesy core. Dry, textured and complex and fruity with flavours of preserved strawberry, red cherry and tart raspberry. Fine chalky tannins in abundance, some sweet oak and mild toastiness then flavours of light red berries with a little under-ripe raspberry. The oak is fresh, balanced and layered into the wine leading to a complex and detailed finish. Drink now and through 2026.
