This wine took its time to reveal its full potential. Vibrant juicy red and black fruit, with finely balanced acidity and subtle oak. Mineral. Silky but powerful tannins. Bright acidity suggests this wine will accompany fatty tuna, turkey and pork dishes exceptionlly well. With time took on a complex savoury character.
The 2009 Fancrest Estate Pinot Noir was listed by Rebecca Gibb MW as one of her top NZ reds of 2014. 92/100
