Wild Rock Cupid’s Arrow Pinot Noir

It’s refreshing to find Central Otago pinot of character and integrity for well under $30. Wild Rock is the second label of Craggy Range, and it’s clear that some of the wizardry of the parent has filtered down to the child. An impressive black fruits and liquorice profile is lifted by violet perfume and structured with fine, gravelly tannins. A taut, vibrant acid line and fine-grained persistence lend an air of sophistication rarely found at this price. $21 at Bellevue Hill Bottle Shop.
