2013 Astrolabe Pinot Noir
Marlborough, New Zealand

Honestly not initially our favorite Pinot, and then some months later we were knocked out by the evolution. Gone was a rather too bracing astringency and zowie was it replaced by delectable dark cherry and plum flavors with a perfect balance of acidity. Yummy!

Winemaker's Notes
"Full bodied wine with round, mouth filling flavours of plum, brambly fruit and dark cherry. The oak integrates nicely with the fruit, and combines well with the silky and linear tannin structure. Should cellar well until at least 2016."
