Left Field Pinot Noir 2019
"Bargain-priced...satisfying depth of berryish, spicy flavours, showing some savoury complexity." Michael Cooper
|Winemaker||Richard Painter, Ant Mackenzie|
Left Field's Pinot Noir is a light, delicate Pinot style, with subtle plum, cherry and floral flavours - a simple, charming wine.
The Pinot Noir yields from grapes grown in the Awatere Valley of Marlborough. The wine was aged for 15 months in barrel.
Left Field is part of the Te Awa Collection, created by the experienced winemaking team of Richard Painter and Ant Mackenzie in the prestigious Hawkes Bay. Here, the winemakers literally went to the left side of the vineyard in their search for inspiration, crafting approachable, consumer-oriented, premium regional vineyards. Sophisticated wines, without being stand-offish.
"Bargain-priced, the 2018 vintage (3.5*) is a ruby-hued red, lively and supple, with satisfying depth of berryish, spicy flavours, showing some savoury complexity. Ready to roll. (From Te Awa.)"Michael Cooper

3.5 STARS - Michael Cooper
Juicy strawberry and cherry notes, with hints of cinnamon and allspice adding interest. Rich, warm, and seductive.
