Giesen Wines Ltd SV 'Ridge Block' Pinot Noir 2013 Marlborough
Complex yet integrating bouquet with scents of old rose mixed with ripe vineyard fruit, red berry and red currant then white smoke laced oak. On the palate - plenty of attack from ripe red berry fruits, layers of integration with mineral and red floral moments, fine yet abundant tannins and plenty of acidity; cinnamon and clove baking spice notes, enough tension and poise to consider this a serious wine. Finding balance sometime in 2017. Best drinking 2018 through 2026.
