Pinot Noir, Isabel Estate 2019, New Zealand
While Otago has the power & Martinborough the structure, Marlborough's pinots have the plump fruitness. A big of a bear hug at the beginning perhaps, but a very classy Pinot nonetheless. Plum, cherry and tar notes and a good backbone. A great food Pinot. Isabel Estate is one of Marlborough's original pioneering wineries.
