Greywacke Marlborough Pinot Noir 2018
A highly fragrant style of Marlborough Pinot with cinnamon and clove spiciness
This wine is deep ruby red in colour with vibrant aromas of red fruit and spices: juicy cherries, strawberries and cranberries. An opulent style of Marlborough Pinot layered with notes of star anise, clove and dark tobacco and subtle hints of rose and lavender. On the palate, it has fine tannins, a classic cool-climate vibrancy and a smoky, long finish.
