|TASTING NOTE: This distinctive, highly satisfying wine is from pinot noir grown in the Wairau Valley. Full of personality, it is pale pink, with an enticingly scented bouquet. Full-bodied (13.5% alc/vol) and fleshy, it has strong, vibrant red-berry and plum flavours, with a gentle touch of tannin giving backbone, and a lasting, dry finish. Fine value.
