2021 Mischief Waipara Pinot Noir
Like a velvet glove, this wine hits hard in all the right places. Satsuma plum and black cherries dominate, with warm spices and a lick of oak rounding out a salivating palate, bringing you more with every sip. Rich and powerful, but light on its feet. Absolutely smashing.
Wine Orbit: This is delightfully ripe and inviting on the nose with dark plum, sweet cherry, dried herb and toasted nut aromas with a hint of mushroom complexity. The palate delivers succulent fruit flavours and smooth mouthfeel, well supported by fine texture and polished tannins. Youthfully charming with ripe berry flavours and spicy nuances. At its best: now to 2027.
93/100, 5 Stars.
