This biodynamic Marlborough producer’s latest releases are on fire and none blazes brighter than this crazy affordable Pinot. Right off the bat it’s balanced and limpid, needing no decanting and barely any swirling to reveal its charms. The aromas are layered and luminous in red fruit, savory spices, dried flowers and a crushed stone minerality. In the mouth, the pristine fruit is embraced by a filigree of talc-like tannins. There’s elegance and poise amidst the quiet power of the fine grained tannins. Drink now–2030.
