Drop of The Week: 2016 Tohu Single Vineyard Pinot Noir

Drop of The Week: 2016 Tohu Single Vineyard Pinot Noir
Situated in the upper reaches of the Awatere Valley vineyard these slow ripening grapes allow for optimum flavour development which leads to a delicately layered Pinot Noir.

A deep ruby hue in the glass, this single vineyard Awatere Valley Pinot Noir displays lifted aromatic layers of cherry, plum and bright red fruit notes with hints of wild thyme.

The palate is richly textured with flavours of ripe red and dark fruit, spice and integrated French oak underpinned by nuances of dry herbs and savoury notes.

Mid-weight on the palate, this wine is balanced with refined silky tannins that lead to a long and elegant finish.
