89pointsYealands 2017 Pinot Noir (Marlborough)

This wine starts out rubbery and a little sweaty thanks to some reduction. But after some time in glass these aromas all but disappear, replaced by more appealing notes: red cherry, orange bitters, green peppercorn, cumin and a streak of graphite. Tannins are fine, herbal and tightly wound, giving the wine an austerity but highlighting some of the more mineral earthy tones. This could cellar nicely for several years although with its everyday drinking price tag, it's unlikely many will bother. Christina Pickard
