Grasshopper-Rock-Pinot-Noir-20142014 Grasshopper Rock Earnscleugh Vineyard Pinot Noir, Central Otago, NZD $34

Delicately scented pinot noir with appealing cherry, spice and mineral flavours. Light to medium-bodied but not lacking in power, as evidenced by the wine’s lengthy finish. Quite Burgundian in style but with a strong Alexandra signature. Class wine at a competitive price. (Screwcap)
