What’s in the glass tonight August 3rd


Churton Marlborough Pinot Noir 2011 – $

From an organic biodynamic winegrower. Bottle with a cork closure – becoming a rarity in the New Zealand market.

Deep ruby colour. 13.5%. A gamey, savoury nose. Red cherries; hint of glacé; some florality.

In the mouth there is rich red berry fruit flavours, packing a punch that belies the low blackmarket.co.nz price. Grippy tannins and quite muscle-y Pinot . The more it sits in the glass the more savoury this wine gets. Exhibits presence and grace.

Produce this wine from greater vine age and more dry extract and this will move into the NZ Pinot big league. 4
