Martinborough Vineyard Pinot Noir

Martinborough Vineyard is high on the A-list of New Zealand’s classic pinot noirs and the natural acidity of the 2011 vintage lends a balanced elegance and poise to this release. An impressively focused wine of lovely violet fragrance and black fruit depth, accented with notes of anise. This will be a long-lived vintage, tightly wound, with excellent structure of firm, finely mineral, gravelly tannins. $63 at Discount Wines.
