What’s in the glass tonight Feb 14th


Roaring Meg Central Otago Pinot Noir 2012- $$

I’m sitting in the bar at Christchurch Airport waiting for my flight home after finishing a satisfying day’s work. Reading about my beloved Liverpool FC on the internet. Watching NZ play India at the Basin Reserve on TV. A glass of good pinot to hand. Bliss.

Roaring Meg is the second label of Mt Difficulty, one of NZs best pinot noir producers.

The wine is a deep carmine colour. A rich and involving savoury forest floor aroma lifts from the glass, with a touch of wet wool and lanolin. Wonderful intensity of flavour; rich and fruit-filled. Big and tannic and bracing (for a PN). Fantastic. 4.5
