Wine Of The Week

Bell Hill 2012 Pinot Noir, North Canterbury $120

This is a wonderful expression of power delivered with great subtlety. It appears to have been made with a light touch that captures influence of site and vintage. A mix of mineral, subtle floral flavours with cherry and spice. Alcohol/fruit sweetness is perfectly balanced by gentle acidity and delicate tannins. Very impressive Pinot Noir that justifies its cult status. (Screwcap) Score: 98 ★★★★★ – view on
