Domain Road Defiance Central Otago Pinot Noir 2016

Master Sommelier, Cameron Douglas.

Direct and to-the-point bouquet of Pinot Noir with dark red berry fruits of raspberry, cherry, plum and currants, wild spices, layers of oak and toasty wood, complex and intriguing, youthful and engaging. Transitions to the palate seamlessly with flavours and textures that reflect the nose; bold youthful tannins and acidity to match. Long finish. Still very young needing a lot more cellar time. Suggested drinking window 2022 through 2032+ – Cameron Douglas MS
