Yealands Estate Single Vineyard Pinot Noir

A kiwi Pinot from Yealands

I've been impressed with Yealands' wines for a number of years and have even met the great man himself. The entry-level wines are clean, precise and very well-made; and they just get better as you go up the range.

This makes Yealands, I think, very good value, even when you are spending mid-teens money. You could pay more and be less wowed by something from a Big Name European wine region.

Yealands Estate Single Vineyard Pinot Noir 2015 A blast of pure, black cherry fruit, farmyard, pencil shavings and oaky spice with freshness and leesy, savoury underpinnings. Substantial, supple, balanced and very well made; expressiveness within a defined structure.

Very Good.

Drinking nicely now, it can also be cellared for a number of years.

Match with autumnal dishes, especially darker game such as venison and duck.
