Matahiwi Estate Pinot Noir 2022, Wairarapa

Matahiwi Estate Pinot Noir

Lovely complexity and intrigue within the bouquet, with aromas of texture and brightness, followed by scents of dark cherry and baked strawberry, some wild plum and dried herb. There’s also a deep minerality reminiscent of silt and sandstone. This wine offers a delicious, lighter-weighted expression as it touches the palate, with fine tannins and a refreshing acid line. The fruit flavours reflect the bouquet, along with earthy highlights and gentle dried herb qualities. Best drinking from late 2024 through 2030.
