Cherry Block Pinot Noir, Central Otago 13.5% ABV, £21
Cherry Block will take you on a journey to a special part of New Zealand, the southernmost wine region in the world, Central Otago. The extreme continental climate of Central Otago is one of fiercely cold nights and long summer days. It is these intense conditions combined with the lush surrounding cherry orchards that serve to create the vivid, rich and spicy nature of Cherry Block Pinot Noir.
Sweetly lifted on the nose showing raspberry, strawberry, toasted almond, mushroom and spice aromas, followed by a juicy palate that is nicely rounded and smooth. The wine is fruit-expressive and elegantly styled, beautifully supported by polished tannins.
