Astrolabe Marlborough Pinot Noir 2018
|New Zealand, Marlborough, Awatere Valley
Bright deep garnet in color. Ripe dark and red cherry, brambly fruits, spice and leather, with a hint of smoky oak. A full-bodied wine with round, mouth-filling flavours of plum, brambly fruit, dark cherry and a hint of savoury herbs. The oak integrates nicely with the fruit and the silky and linear tannin structure.
Plump raspberry and cherry fruit lead in this Pinot. The fruit is woven through with notes of baking spice, flowers and tar. The palate is round, with plump fruit and savory spice. Firm tannins harmonize with fresh acidity. Drink now-2025.
