‘The Rise’ Pinot Noir
New Zealand, Waipara
Savory dry earth and an expressive complexity greet the nose upon its first smell of this wine. The aromatics evolve into violets, ripe dark cherry and spice as the wine opens up and breathes. The palate is rich and earthy with distinctly dusty tannins. The tannins are firm but the wine remains vibrant and not too heavy, resulting in a fresh finish.
