ASTROLABE PINOT NOIR COMELYBANK 15
A very taut single vineyard Marlborough Pinot Noir from a very good vintage in this country’s biggest wine region, Marlborough. Firm but smooth earthy flavours and staunch tannins give way to dark black cherry flavours and the wine was made from hand picked grapes which were destemmed, fermented warm with wild yeasts and aged in French oak, 44% new, for nine months. This wine is a blend of the best barrels.
This wine is bottled unfined and unfiltered. No wonder it tastes so good.
