This 60/40 Pinot Noir/Chardonnay has spent 42 months on the lees before disgorging July 2013. Grapes were sourced from Marlborough's Aware and Southern valleys. Ample toast and dough come across coarse on the palate, though there is a pleasant cherry, firm pear and red apple-fruit core. A plastic note lingers on the shorter finish. Drink now.
