91pointsSpy Valley 2016 Handpicked Single Estate Southern Valleys Pinot Noir (Marlborough)

This Pinot, from Marlborough's Southern Valleys subregion, is ripe and fruity but not jammy or baked. Instead the perfume is floral with brambly raspberries, red currants, wild strawberries and undertones of cocktail bitters and wet stones. There's a lovely lightness to the mouthfeel. Although the fruit is gripped by herb-flecked tannins, they're woven into the wine rather than sitting over the top of it. A savory, herbal note lingers long on the finish. A delicate, modern Pinot for drinking young. Christina Pickard
