Huia 2015 Pinot Noir (Marlborough)

This five-year-old Pinot bottling is on the dense side, by Marlborough standards, with an autumnal vibe. It needs air for some of the reduction to blow off and then it reveals notes of ripe brambly berries, dried violets, earthy spices and meaty undertones, with a bit of soapy oak. The palate isn't as harmonious as one would hope considering the bottle age, but there's lifted acidity, a grip of dusty tannins and oak spice amidst the slightly heavy fruit. Christina Pickard
