Martinborough Te Tera Pinot Noir 2016
This is a saturated dark ruby hue with considerable density. The distinct pinot bouquet is alluring and savoury while the taste is rounded and full with deep, soft, smooth tannins and a momentary peppery zing. There’s a meaty richness to the wine with dark, ripe berries – loganberries come to mind, and a touch of salinity to the salivating savoury finish. Concentrated with weight, structure and intensity, it’s exceptional value. Gold medal NZIWS 2017.
