From Central Otago, South Island, Rapaura Springs Reserve 2018 Pinot Noir is a juicy, spicy and elegant PN with dark cherry, dried herb, earthy mushroom and spicy flavours silky on the palate. Lightly chill and enjoy with lamb and veggie kebabs.

Pinot Noir food pairings: duck confit, grilled lamb chops, roast chicken.
