Millton Estate, La Cote Pinot Noir 2017, Gisborne, New Zealand
Tasting Note: Floral in all the right places, a pinot noir with some complexity and midpalate body.
Medium-intensity ruby-to-purple in color, this wine has an aromatic, medium-plus-intensity nose of red cherry, strawberry compote and crushed white blossom with notes of bramble and wildflower.
On the palate the dry, medium-bodied pinot noir has medium-intensity flavors suggested on the nose supported by medium acidity and ripe, medium tannin.
Bottle Note: James Millton, Artisan Winegrower.
