Johner Pinot Noir 2011

Johner Wairapa Pinot Noir 2011 – $

I knew nothing about this producer from Gladstone in the Wairarapa. A low price at Moore Wilsons and a good review on the price sticker was the attractor. But what a find!

Bright carmine colour. 14%. Open cherry floral aroma, hint of minerality. Ripe red cherries in the mouth, spicy, fine tannins, a bit of soap on opening but this gassed off as the wine opened up round and juicy. Long finish. I’ll buy more of this tasty bargain. 4.
