Dog Point Pinot Noir, Marlborough 2012 $44 Value: outstanding

This is a seriously impressive pinot, with more stuffing than usual in Marlborough pinot. With a deep red-purple hue and an impressively rich dark-cherry bouquet, it’s concentrated, full-bodied and sweet-fruited with ample tannins and great structure. A glorious wine that will take some age well. Now to 13 years. 14 per cent alcohol. 96/100 – Huon’s Wine 360

Food: lamb cutlets with rosemary

Stockists: Boccaccio Cellars, Melbourne; Vintage Blue, Sydney
