A personal favourite of mine here! I love New Zealand Pinot noir so it's about time a new one showed up. A gorgeous example from Wanaka Road made by the famous Mount Edward Winery.
Founded in 1997, the winery was originally started as a small personal project, a very traditional style of winery producing Pinot Noir and Riesling. They have morphed into completely different growers over the last 2O years, driven by a desire to be progressive and individual. Organically run, with each and every wine wanting to be a pleasure to drink.
Their heart is all about Pinot Noir, making wines that are just delicious – textural, subtle, moreish wines – each different from the next, each unique to their place and our style. These guys grow and make a variety of other wines to keep the head happy, everything from Pet Nat to Orange to Gamay to Chardonnay – and they even have the odd Riesling for the dedicated amongst us.
Wanaka Road Central Otago Pinot Noir 2015 @ £20.95 - Buy it here!
Aromas of dark berry fruits, spice, savoury tones and thyme. A sinewy palate full of bright fruit flavours with a delicate herbal thread throughout.
Truly gorgeous. This hits the spot dead on if you love a big pinot noir! Cheers!
