Paddy Borthwick 2016 Paper Road Pinot Noir (Wairarapa)

This wine, from the bottom of the North Island, starts off on the reductive side. It opens somewhat after time in the glass but remains a bit of a broody beast. Aromas of soy sauce, meat and damp earth mingle with ripe red cherry. The fruit on the palate is a little syrupy, and the tannins are astringent and woody, but give this some time and it should knit together better. Drink 2020–2027. Christina Pickard
