Wine Of The Week

Amisfield Pinot Noir, Central Otago 2012 $45

A deep, powerful, highly structured pinot, with a strong red-purple colour and concentrated, rich, ripe aromas and flavours of dark fruits and spices. It’s quite full-bodied, the structure quite imposing, demanding it be served with protein. It will also age well. (Screw cap; 14 per cent alcohol.) Score: 95 ★★★★★ – view on

Food idea: Roast duck.
