One of the holy grails of the wine trade - Pinot Noir at the right price that actually tastes like Pinot Noir...amazing! Add the fact that it's from New Zealand and it becomes all the more amazing!! New to us, Wingspan are based in Nelson, west of Marlborough, farming their vineyards sustainably in this, the warmest region of NZ.
The nose is full of soft red fruits with spicy tones, the palate is a real surprise for a wine at this level: dark berry fruits with real grip, structure and acidity. Hedgerow fruits lie alongside spicy raspberrry and classic Pinot tang with a clean, proper finish.
SC Rating - Outstanding (for the price) Dan
