Martinborough Vineyard Te Tera Pinot Noir 2006

90 points

Martinborough, North Island, New Zealand. 13.5%

I was very impressed with this. Fresh juicy fruit with a savoury seam and smokey spicy oak (that for some reason I associate with Sth Africa). A touch sweet but not sickly and no obtrusive oak flavours. Very good for a well priced ‘2nd wine’ of this estate.

Drink now or wait a year or two. Should last another 5 years.
