2020 Nursery Block Dry Red

Best's Nursery Block Dry Red

TASTING NOTES

Colour: Luminescent crimson with a scarlet hue.
Bouquet: Deeply scented with layers of wild berries, grilled citrus and bush spices.
Palate: Raspberry and red cherries dominate with a soft and juicy middle palate. The gentle tannins are streamlined and savoury.
Cellaring: Good to drink in the short term but it should age well for 10 years or more
Vintage: A hot and dry growing season meant the vines ripened quickly and crops were lower than average. Sufficient water supply ensured the grapevines remained in good health and a cool February ensured all the natural acidity was retained at harvest. The grapes had bundles of concentrated flavour and lots of vibrant acidity.

REVIEWS

The Real Review, Huon Hooke – December 21
Light, bright red/purple colour. There are spicy, herbal and nettly aromas and a wild raspberry fruit note – with a few crushed raspberry leaves thrown in. Very light-bodied, bright and fresh, clean and well-made, with feather-light tannins and seamless balanced acidity. A wine built on drinkability, not power or age worthiness. There are similarities with the lighter vintages of Bests’ pinot meunier – which is on of the 15 varieties that could be in this field blend. Drink now to 2026 Rating: 90 points
