2013 Mt. Beautiful Pinot Noir
North Canterbury, New Zealand
22+ bottles available.
Vibrant ruby red colour with enticing fragrant aromas of black cherry, violets and dried herbs. The palate is moderately full bodied, expressive and supple with ripe bramble fruit, subtle tannins, great length and persistence of flavour. A classic Pinot Noir, which is approachable now but will reward the patient drinker for a number of years.
$23.39 as part of a mixed case.
2014 Mt. Difficulty Roaring Meg Pinot Noir
Central Otago, New Zealand
90 WS; 90 WE
18+ bottles available.
This wine highlights the slightly cooler season with lovely perfumed dark red forest berries and cherry fruits along with a hint of dried herb, adding complexity. The wine has a sweet berry entry which displays these same characters in abundance. Lovely ripe textural tannins rise gracefully out of the mid-palate to finish the wine. These are balanced by the wine's acidity and fruit, to produce a long fruit-driven finish.
$24.29 as part of a mixed case.
