94pointsRippon 2016 Mature Vine Lake Wanaka Pinot Noir (Central Otago)

Cellar Selection

From one of New Zealand's most celebrated wineries, located on the pristine shores of Lake Wanaka, this Pinot is made for the long haul. Brambly fruit and spice center on an earthy, spicy core. Dense, nearly impenetrable on the palate, a powerful line of taut, fine tannins cinch the fruit and spice. While just starting to show some age, this remains an austere but laser-focused wine that requires patience, but should reward in spades with time in cellar. Drink 2021–2035. Christina Pickard
