Hawkshead - "Central Otago" Pinot Noir 2020Regular price $49.00 Save $-49.00
Central Otago Pinot Noir is growing every year closer to ‘Pinot Perfection’, and so does the Hawkshead 2020 Pinot Noir
This is a modern Pinot Noir for drinking young but with the potential to be explored in ten years time by the patient connoisseur. So here is the perfect opportunity to start a cellar, hide a few bottles, store them in the ideal condition, and you will be in for a journey of discovery.
Notes: Purity is the trademark for the 2020 Hawkshead ‘Central Otago’ Pinot Noir. Experienced through a graceful slender palate, incisive freshness and insistent aromatics. Blackberry and Doris plum aromatics escape from the glass, only to augment concentration on the palate with alluring wild herb and sweet spice nuances.
This is a medium-bodied wine. Abundant ripe fruit is set against a frame of fine-grained tannins and youthful acidity. The wine has excellent balance and structure. A modern Pinot Noir for drinking young but also with the potential to be explored in 10 years.
