    A juicy, vibrant, silky, fruit-driven Central Otago Pinot Noir with flavours of dark cherries, plums, cherries, spices, cherries and a dash of family nostalgia.

    Cherry Block co-founder Tim really wanted to bottle the spirit of his family owned Boyd Cherry Orchard located down the road in Alexandra, Central Otago. Well, he’s sure done that with this 2019 release of the Cherry Block Central Otago Pinot Noir.

    Made under the guidance of a couple of experienced winemakers Digger Hennessy & Corey Hall, they’ve been around the traps making wine here and overseas for many a vintage, including a decent stint at the iconic Matua Valley back in the day.

    Plenty of value going on here for a sub-$20 Central Pinot.
