2020 Luna Estate Pinot Noir
The Luna Estate Pinot Noir comes from two precious parcels of land, which are home to Luna Estate’s Martinborough vineyards – Bluerock and Eclipse. From ancient seabed to river terrace, our two distinct terroirs allow us to create wines that truly reflect our place.
“Vibrant ruby red with some solid, darker tones. The first sniff is greeted with plenty of Pinot personality and a heap of classic Martinborough Character! I love it when a Pinot smells of fruit, earth, mineral and savoury elements altogether, something we tend to achieve more often than not around these parts! Excellent silky, soft flow to the mouthfeel with plenty of fruity weight and texture, like the smell, the taste has fruit and spice and earth in equal measure. Nice finish, tasting savoury and earthy just like a good Martinborough Pinot should. This wine is delicious now but will no doubt gain greater level of delicious with a couple of years bottle age. Will drink nicely for many years to come.” – Joel Watson, Winemaker
“93 points. A gorgeous perfume with great intensity. The nose shows attractive berry characters, roses, violets, strawberry lollies, with red liquorice, dark chocolate, and meaty elements. A dense, ripe, fleshy Pinot with genuine concentration, richness on the mid-palate and dense, sinewy, dusty tannins that linger. Enjoyable wine with weight and balance.” – Wine Rater
