Wine: Woolaston Mahana 2012 Pinot Noir
Awarded: Elite Silver (2014)
Region: Nelson

Notes: A fantastic, full bodied, powerhouse of a Pinot Noir.  25% aged in new French oak for 18 months. Layered aroma’s of spiced plum, ripe currants and smooth oak. Presenting the palate with complex, yet well balanced flavours of dark ripe  black cherry, smooth grain to silky tannins.
Drinking well now, but will be enhanced by a further 4-6 years careful cellaring.
