Te Muna Valley Hawk Pinot Noir 2010 750ml
Hawk is Te Muna Valley’s second label but you would never guess it when you taste it. The colour belies its age, it still has bright ruby red tones and a deep look reveals hints of tawny and brick. The nose is beguiling with a wonderful mix of ripe berry, cherry and plum combined with earth spice and tobacco with mature flavours of kirsch, dried fruits and autumn leaves which shows all the hallmarks of a mature wine that still has life. The palate is rich and smooth showing great balance not only in mouthfeel but also with interplay of youthful and mature flavours all culminating in a beautifully smooth and very satisfying wine.
