Spy Valley Pinot Noir

Vine age has been a key driver of the rise of Marlborough pinot noir in recent years. Spy Valley ranks among the best producers in the region, having first planted the variety more than twenty years ago, and even its youngest vines were ten years of age in 2011. This infuses an elegant, mineral tannin profile and impressive persistence, focus and purity of rose hip, red cherry, mixed spice and anise. $22 at Bellevue Hill.
