Peregrine Pinot Noir 2016 Review

If you're going to spend over $30 on a New World Pinot Noir you can’t go wrong here. The wine opens with cherries and the sweeter side of rhubarb, along with some green tea vibes. On the palate the mouthfeel is soft and supple with a prominent tannin structure, for Pinot, and well balanced acidity promoting added notes of earthy strap leather and seasoned raw meat. It’s one of the few wines from New Zealand with cork, so it will age a bit as well.
