Charles Wiffen Marlborough Pinot Noir 2010

Charles Wiffen Marlborough Pinot Noir 2010 – $$

I really liked this wine at a NZ Pinot Noir review tasting I attended a couple of years back. I got paid, wanted a payday treat, and here was a chance to have another look, courtesy of the specials bin at Regional Wines…

Dusky carmine in the glass. 13.5%. Light floral nose, red fruits.

Red cherries in the mouth; good weight, balanced tannins. Smooth mouthfeel, slight spice. Well-built, and cellaring well. Buy this if you can’t find any Johner. 4
