This is plush and very attractive Waipara Pinot Noir from The Bone Line. It's fruit forward and soft in the mouth with layers of dark cherry and plum on the palate. A supple, delicious wine that is good to go right now. Highly recommended.
The winery writes "Deep ruby – crimson flashes at rim. Aromatically of the Waipara region – black plum – morello cherry & spice – understated oak offers gentle earthiness. In the mouth – bountiful sweet fruit – plummy dark cherry from Dijon clones & long tapered finish from old Swiss clones. Supple soft endearing wine made to enjoy young. Please do."
Cameron Douglas MS writes "It’s easy to miss the complexity in the bouquet - aromas of plum and cherry, strawberry and baking spices, stony mineral and completeness. On the palate - a complete wine - fresh, bright, youthful, tense, textured and fruity. Flavours mirror the nose accentuated with fine, firm chalky tannins, medium+ acidity and a velvet texture throughout. Well made and ready to enjoy from today and through 2026."
Supple, soft and super pleasing. Great with Saturday night dinner.
