Lowburn Ferry Home Block Pinot Noir 2013 75cl

Simply one of the best Kiwi Pinot Noirs! Medium crimson. Sweet, like the warm smell billowing from the kitchen when cherry compote is simmering away on the stove. Mouthwatering and tingling with deliciousness. There's a sharp spine, like a slash of cranberry, which snaps all that sweet cherry juice into smart shape, and just a hint of menthol and liquorice to give it the suggestion of a dark side. The tannins lean ever so lightly on the tongue, more playful than practical. A wine that will probably give as much pleasure in its callow youth as it will with some mellowing age." 17.5/20 Tamlyn Currin

Deep in the south of New Zealand and surrounded by mountain ranges is Central Otago New Zealand's smallest but fastest growing wine region and home to some of the finest vineyards in the country. Central Otago has a continental climate hot summers and long cold winters and in small pockets of the region the combination of microclimate and unique soil conditions are perfect for growing the fickle Pinot Noir grape.
