Aronui Single Vineyard Nelson Pinot Noir 2014
"Lovely length and impressive. A really memorable example indeed. Bravo!" - 95pts & Gold Medal - Decanter Magazine
A vibrant ruby red hue in the glass, this medium - full bodied and expressive Pinot Noir from Nelson displays aromatic layers of dark fruit, bright cherry and subtle savoury oak. Richly textured and concentrated, the palate delivers intense dark berry fruits, black plum and subtle earthy notes. Elegantly balanced with smooth tannins and hints of spice, this generous wine leads to a long and lasting finish. Drink now or until 2024.
