Nga Waka Lease Block Pinot Noir 2021
$60.00 inc. GST
Everyone’s favourite. Planted in 1999 our Lease Block vineyard produces exceptional grapes year after year. 2020 is possibly one of the best vintages in Martinborough for 20 years, we are very excited to release this wine.
The wine showcases the berry, spice and savoury flavours for which Martinborough Pinot Noir is renowned with the extra depth, texture and complexity that mature vines and an outstanding site deliver. This wine will improve under sound cellaring conditions for 6-8 years and provide pleasurable drinking for many years thereafter.
Unfined and unfiltered. Suitable for vegans.
Michael Cooper – 5 Stars
Still a baby, the deeply coloured, concentrated 2021 vintage is a single-vineyard red, from vines planted in 1999. Matured in French oak barriques, it was bottled unfined and unfiltered. Weighty and sweet-fruited, it has rich, vibrant, youthful cherry, plum and spice flavours, finely integrated nutty oak adding complexity, fresh acidity and a savoury, lasting finish. Already approachable, but very ageworthy, it’s well worth cellaring to 2026+.
