Cloudy Bay, Marlborough Pinot Noir 2020

(2022) What a seductively moreish Pinot this is. Pale to medium colour, there's lots of custardy, creamy oak, but matched by a depth of ripe red berries and undertow of truffle and autumnal forest floor. Spices too. In the mouth it is medium-bodied and quite creamy and rich, but retains plenty of sappy, briary character, good cherry-ripe acidity, and a very fine, firm tannin structure. A really lovely wine this from a great year, and the best Cloudy Bay Marlborough Pinot to date in my opinion. Watch the video for more information.
