Awatere River, by Louis Vavasour focus on quality over quantity and you can be sure that this screams quality. A multi-award winning winery.
Raymond Chan writes "Medium-full bodied, this has up-front, aromatic and sweetly lush fruit flavours of dark red berry fruit, plums and hole berry fermentation jam elements, interwoven with subtle notes of dark herbs. The palate is gently mouthfilling, the fruit sweetness supported by fine-grained, supple tannin extraction and balanced, integrated acidity. The wine carries to a rich, fleshy, fruity finish with lingering nuances of red berry and plum fruit and hints of jam. This is an up-front, juicy and fleshy Pinot Noir with flavours of red berry and plum fruit on a fine, supple palate."
