Waipara Hills Central Otago Pinot Noir 2010

SORRY THIS WINE IS NOT AVAILABLE FOR PURCHASE

Leading on from the 2009, the 2010 once again has a lovely complexity of fruit and savoury characters. If allowed it can really open up in the glass and years.

Waipara Hills Central Otago Pinot Noir 2010

TASTING NOTES

COLOUR

Dark purple/garnet

NOSE

A wonderfully rich and, in some ways, rustic palate of earth, chocolate, spice and dark cherry aromas.

The nose follows into the palate with dark cherry and earthy, chocolate notes, then the firm tannins pull the flavours together and leave the palate crisp and awaiting the next sip.

At about 15oC, or just below room temperature.

ACCOLADES

Silver - Spiegelau International Wine Competition 2011 (NZ)
3 Stars - What Food What Wine 2011 (UK) matched with Mushroom Risotto
4 Stars - Cuisine Magazine 2011 (NZ). "Sweet rhubarb and raspberry flavours, together with a fresh spearmint note, take the top register; below that there's a tannic and toasty oak rumble. Pretty yet powerful, this wine is made in a commercial style and should have wide appeal. Bring in out alongside a classic coq au vin".
Highly Commended - Sydney International Wine Competition 2012.
Bronze - Royal Easter Show Wine Awards (NZ) 2012
Silver - Decanter World Wine Awards (UK) 2012
Bronze - International Wine Challenge (UK) 2012
