Stoneleigh Latitude Pinot Noir 2016

Sourced from selected parcels of Marlborough fruit from the Stoneleigh vineyards along Rapaura Road. Stoneleigh are a cut above the average entry level NZ producer.

Stoneleigh, Latitude, Pinot Noir, Marlborough, 2016

Smoky, twiggy, tangy dark forest cherries with plenty of undergrowth, smoked meats and dark raspberry. Toothsome, ropey tannins with vanilla like oak riding slick and sweet. Solid core of dark berry/cherry fruit, good push through the mid palate offering generosity from start to finish, Maybe a twinkle of heat in the eye to close, but nothing too concerning.

RRP: $23
Alc: 13.5%
Rating: 17.25/20
