2020 Kōparepare Marlborough Pinot Noir

"Deep ruby-red with bright clarity, lighter edged. The nose is gentle, delicate aromas of toasty oak entwined with cherries, strawberries, underlying thyme and spice. Medium-bodied, strawberries and cherries fruit have a savoury tone, melded with subtle mocha, thyme and black pepper. The mouthfeel is smooth flowing and silky with a light phenolic grip; savoury element broadens the palate and lingers with a hint of tapenade. This is a savoury Pinot Noir features a silky palate, rich red fruit, and delicate herb and pepper linger. Match with Provençal chicken and lamb chops over the next 3 years." 90/100 Points, Candice Chow, Raymond Chan Wine Reviews, NZ
