Astrolabe Marlborough Pinot Noir 2017
75 CL, 13.5%
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.
Will reward careful cellaring over several years through the development of bottle age complexities and is already drinking well.
Venison, duck, game, roasted beetroot, rare and tender lamb, and earthy wild mushrooms.
