Paddy Borthwick 2018 Pinot Noir (Wairarapa)

This crimson-hued Pinot from the Wairarapa region (think Martinborough) at the bottom of the North Island, has the savoriness and density of the region with a lovely delicacy, too. It opens with plump cherries, roses, touches of stalky cinnamon spice and ground pepper, and an earthy underbelly. The palate is light to medium bodied, with vibrant berry, floral and spice held together by leathery tannins. Oak is in a supporting role here. Christina Pickard
