This beautiful Central Otago Pinot Noir won a gold medal at the 2009 international Wine Challenge in the United Kingdom. It presents a strong red berry fruit aromas with a hint of wild mushroom, spice and thyme.
The palate is well balanced with integrated toasty oak characters and a fine tannin structure. This lovely drop can be enjoyed now however, like all fine wines; it will improve with age and can be saved for a rainy day.
