Vavasour 2008 Pinot Noir (Awatere Valley)

Editors' Choice

The Awatere is a Marlborough subregion whose wines are often a touch more edgy than those grown in the main valley. After nine months in French oak, this wine's black cherry fruit is marked by touches of vanilla and toast, a slightly creamy mouthfeel and a crisp, refreshing finish. Approachable now, but should develop more nuance over the next year or two. Joe Czerwinski
