Peter Yealands Pinot Noir 2016 Review

Yelands Estate is a pioneer in sustainable grape growing and winemaking. They are located in the Awatere Valley, a sub-region of Marlborough, New Zealand. The Awatere Valley is near the coast, where the cool breezes moderate the growing season. This is an excellent value Pinot Noir, with a light ruby color, and aromas that include blackberries, raspberries, and a hint of tomato leaves. The texture is medium-bodied and lively, with smooth flavors of tart fruit and a hint of black tea. Value-priced Pinot Noir that's this high-quality isn't easy to find, so keep this wine on your shortlist.
