2017 Best Pinot Noir

Put these wines alongside Burgundies of similar age, and they won’t yield any ground.The same can be said of Central Otago; as each year goes by, the number of first-class pinots increases. Yet there is still a long way to go on this journey, with new clones slotting in alongside MV6, an old clone unique to Australia. The average age of vines is also rising – the oldest are now more than 40 years old.
