The last wine of 2013

Mt Difficulty Pinot Noir 2008

From the cellar: Mount Difficulty Central Otago Pinot Noir 2008 – $$$

This was a truly top Kiwi wine to see in the New Year with (thanks G!).

Dense pinot colour, with a developed fragrant nose of violets and herby wild thyme. It was a big pinot, spicy and slightly dusty, with delicious flavours of ripe black cherries. Tasty from top to bottom (thanks to L, I didn’t have to drive home afterwards. Hurrah!).  A long legged fine wine and superior attitude adjuster from a noble producer: 4.75.
