Hawke's Bay is not the region that first springs to mind when you think of NZ Pinot Noir, but this offering from relative newcomer Osawa Wines shows plenty of varietal twang. Spiced red cherry and plum fruits segue into lighter wafts of game, red licorice and forest floor. Bright acidity, fine-grained tannins and a medium-length finish feature in a wine that shows excellent drinkability.
