What’s in the glass tonight October 28th

Ostler PN 2011a

Ostler Pinot Noir Waitaki 2011

I’m in Twizel in the South Island on business. Just had a delicious meal of pork belly washed down with a great glass of 8-Wired IPA beer (3+) and then a glass of Mysterious Diggings Pinot Noir Central Otago. (3+)

Back at the hotel room now with a nightcap of Ostler Pinot Noir Waitaki 2011. Smells stalky and thin. Lean fruit in the mouth. Too acidic, grasping, vegetal. Not good. 2

Spinyback PN 2012

Spinyback Waimea Pinot Noir Nelson 2012

13.5%.I had a bit better luck with this one while at Chch airport waiting to fly home the next day. Lightly aromatic. Soft ripe fruit. Not much tannin grip. Ok. 3
