McArthur Ridge Southern Tor Pinot Noir 2016 Central Otago
Lovely bouquet of dark fruited Pinot with aromas of dark cherry and ripe plump raspberry, aromas of oak layer in with a mix of vanilla and clove. Dry, fruity and exuberant on the palate with a core of red berry fruit flavours, firm-ish tannins and refreshing layer of acidity. A balanced and well made wine, youthful and well placed to enjoy with or without food. Best drinking late 2020 through 2024.
