Koyama 2016 Williams' Vineyard S Pinot Noir (Waipara Valley)

Cellar Selection

With 70% whole bunch fermentation in open-top French barrels, this is an ultraprecise wine that is young now but should age remarkably well. Tones of kirsch, prunes, mushroom, charcuterie, baking spice and woodsy, alpine notes flow into a tightly knit palate, wound by sappy, savory, ultrafine tannins. This serious and food friendly Pinot needs a decantering if you are cracking open now, but it will reward the most patient imbiber for at least the next decade. Christina Pickard
