Ferngrove Independence Pinot Noir 2019
Garnet red. Lifted black cherry on the nose. Light, supple texture, fresh black fruits with a hint of spices finishing with a soft but long acidity.
Brokenwood Pinot Noir 2019
Red berry and bramble fruit notes tending into dark plum – very attractive aromas. A slightly deeper colour from the 2019 vintage. The palate starts out bolder with dark red fruits and sweet edges from the French oak used. Lovely ripe tannins and a good acid backbone carries the flavours right to the finish. The lingering after taste makes for a very enjoyable Pinot Noir. Duck and Pinot is a classic combination, also try with quail and steak tartare.
Pete’s Pure Pinot Noir 2020
Vibrant, lively with beautiful forest notes on the nose, along with strawberry and cream and dominant cranberry. Background notes of raspberry and Rosé petal work seamlessly alongside vanilla bean pod and herbal nuances. A lively palate presents itself thanks to a slurpable lighter frame backed by a crunchy acidity and fine tannin base. Hits of red berry fruits and a distinct herbal touch give this wine a cheeky personality. For optimum enjoyment, it’s best served with a slight chilled.
