Te Kairanga Estate Pinot Noir 2020. Deep, dark intense Burgundy in colour, this Pinot Noir leads with seductive dark berry fruit. A fine savoury spice undertone on the nose leads to a ripe, intense, and pleasing palate with dark rich fruit flowing to a full savoury finish. Fine smooth tannins add a soft structure and texture to finish. The perfect match for game meat such as pan seared Venison with chimichurri and root vegetables. 

Winemaker: John Kavanagh            Region: Martinborough
