Saint Clair 2010 Pioneer Block 16 Awatere Pinot Noir (Marlborough)

The cherry fruit that defines this wine is almost too bright, too pure—it verges on being confected in character. Yet it's reined in by a leash of vanilla oak and a reasonably firm structure of acids and tannins. The wine is merely too young at the moment, so give it a few years to mellow and gain complexity.
