Wild pinot

wild-earth-earth-sky-pinot-noir-2010Wild Earth ‘Earth & Sky’ Pinot Noir 2010, Central Otago, NZD $85

Robust and intense pinot noir with concentrated plum and dark cherry flavours together with an earthy savoury character, the beginning of toasty bottle development and a generous influence of spicy oak. Sweet fruit helps to make this bold red more accessible, although it will obviously benefit from more bottle age. (Screwcap)
