2017 Duck Point Pinot Noir

“Smooth, quite velvety-textured wine…”


Insider Price

From New Zealand’s dry and sunny Marlborough region, 2017 Duck Point Pinot Noir shows a deep ruby red at the rim and garnet depth to the center of the glass. Aromas of boysenberry, plum, and lush black cherry play a starring role, while wisps of smoke and spicy oak round out the performance. The palate is layered and nuanced, with mouth-filling flavors of sweet red berry fruits with a red plum finish.

Peter Saunders gave Duck Point Pinot Noir a 4-star review in Wine Orbit, saying, “Smooth, quite velvety-textured wine, showing a warm fruit statement... Food-friendly style, especially served with lamb or slightly spicy pasta.”
