Paddy Borthwick 2016 Pinot Noir (Wairarapa)

This is a plush, dense, fairly reductive wine that kicks off with ripe red and black fruits, damp earth, drying leaves, charred meat, cola and stony mineral characters. The palate is full-bodied with concentrated fruits and distinctive sappy, earthy tannins that are typical to this region. This needs time but it should cellar nicely. Drink 2021–2029.
