21st BIRTHDAY SUPERDEAL | NEW LOW PRICE ON THIS MUCH ADMIRED RELEASE.
Considered to be one of New Zealand's finest producers, Astrolabe have built their reputation on consistently producing exceptional wines. This Marlborough Pinot Noir is no exception - a generous expression with plenty of weight and complexity. The 2016 is a full bodied wine with round, mouthfilling flavours in the plum, brambly fruit and dark cherry spectrum. The oak component integrates nicely with the fruit, and combines well with the silky and linear tannin structure. Highly recommended.
The winery writes "Soft, full and fruity, with ripe cherry and crushed berry flavours, some defining oak tannin structure, gentle acidity and a generous weight. Will reward careful cellaring over several years throught the development of bottle age complexities, and is already drinkin well. A great match with Asian and wild duck, rare lamb and venison, char-grilled chicken or tuna."
