2018 A2 Pinot Noir Magnum


Unquestionably fruit driven from the moment of opening - gorgeous, rich Central Otago sensations from a hot vintage - a festoon of dark plum and rose petal florals fill the glass.

There is depth and concentration of aroma with subtle graphite, Turkish delight and a slatey mineral lift. Whilst the nose is already intriguing, this wine is foremost and hospitably fruit driven. 

Plush and pillowy entry with plenty of weight and texture to the dark fruit-focused core, plums and cherries galore. Very good power and intensity with generosity, cut through with fine acidity and layered tannin structure.

Sumptuous and comforting but with poise – opera, not ballet.

Cellaring – Up to 5 years, but really there is no need to wait.

 Food – Any lamb from Yotam Ottolenghi, some middle eastern influence and a squeeze of lemon juice over the top to get your tastebuds really going.
