Spy Valley Envoy Pinot Noir

Envoy is the child of a single block of Spy Valley’s oldest pinot noir vines, and tends to land at the fuller-bodied end of the Marlborough spectrum. It delivers impressive black cherry and violet fragrance in 2010, with refreshing lift for a pinot of 14.5% alcohol. The palate is built on wonderfully mineral tannin depth, considerable drive and enduring persistence of liquorice and spice flavour. A Marlborough pinot of considerable longevity. $46 at NZ Wine Online.
