Two Paddocks 2018 The Fusilier Propietor's Reserve Pinot Noir (Central Otago)

Editors' Choice

Four years into the making of this wine—from proprietor and actor Sam Neill's vineyard in Bannockburn, right next door to the renown Felton Road—and the results are stellar. Indeed, Felton's Block 5 Pinot, in particular, seems cut from a similar cloth, but this bears the unmistakable mark of Two Paddocks. It's highly perfumed and downright sexy, a tightrope walk of evocative flavor (think fresh red berries, mushrooms and dried flowers) and ultrafine, ethereal tannins. It's so approachable and complete, in fact, that it'd be tempting to think it's simpler than it is. But wound up in one harmonious package there's a lot of layers to this little beauty. Drink now–2030. Christina Pickard
