ME PINOT NOIR 2018 Wairarapa, North Island
Vintage Assessments Tasting Note Producer MATAHIWI ESTATE
Medium-deep red colour. Intense, fairly complex, slightly reductive, spicy, attractive, ripe, cranberry-plum-cassis purée nose with some gentle cedary notes.

A tasty, rather classy, crowd-pleasing Pinot Noir that has lots of appeal at the price. Has 15.5% alcohol and 2 g/L residual sugar. Has not appeared in Vintages before. CSPC 12606
