96 POINTS | Cameron Douglas MS
Very classy pinot from this boutique Marlborough producer. Novum have only released a few wines but they're certainly making a splash with them. This pinot release is rich and mouth-filling with flavours in the ripe cherry and plum spectrum - not to mention it's earned a whopping 96 points from Cam Douglas MS. Very well deserved.
Cameron Douglas MS writes "A complex and very captivating bouquet with scents of sweet oak and baking spices, a core of myriad red berry fruits, heirloom roses, soils and minerals. On the palate - equally complex, layered and captivating with fruit, barrel, floral and mineral flavours that reflect the bouquet. Fine tannins with a chalk dust texture, medium+ acidity and lengthy finish. A delicious wine."
The distributor writes "In Appearance: Deep, ruby-red, with some purple hues.On the Nose: Fragrant with old fashioned plum and dark red berry fruit, with dried herb and subtle earthy notes.On the Palate: Mouth-filling, generous, and multi-layered with more red fruit, ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, plenty of structure, finishing with softness and length."
