The Better Half Pinot Noir

Flavours:

Warm and welcoming, fragrant black berry and dark cherry notes blend with a subtle touch of spice from French oak barrels.

Food Matches:

Enjoy al fresco with a platter of chorizo and cured meats, or in cooler weather pair with a heartier dish like porcini risotto or a slow-braised lamb shanks with cinnamon and star anise.

Reviews for the 2021:

“Classic Marlborough expression with aromas and flavours of dark cherry and doris plums, there’s a gentle savoury spice with fine baking spice and wood scents of vanilla and clove. Plush, fruity and dry on the palate with moderately firm tannins and plenty of acidity setting a decent foundation for core fruit flavours. Dry on the finish with plenty of pinosity and charm.
