This is a really good Central Otago Pinot Noir for a very good price. It’s an own-label wine form Marks & Spencer made by Duncan Forsyth at Mount Edward. It will need a bit of time for the oak to integrate fully, but at £16 a bottle this is punching above its weight.
Earth’s End Pinot Noir 2013 Central Otago, New Zealand
14% alcohol. Fresh red cherries with some floral notes, as well as a bit of spicy oak. The palate is smooth and pure with vibrant red cherry fruit but also a bit of spicy oak. Medium bodied, pure and interesting:give it year for the wine to fully integrate. 91/100 (£16 Marks & Spencer)
