Wine of the Week NZ

Misha’s Vineyard The High Note Pinot Noir 2013, Central Otago, NZD $44.95

Very appealing pinot noir in a riper style with wonderful purity and energy. Dark cherry, a hint of woodsmoke, liquorice and spicy oak flavours topped off with an ethereal texture and lengthy finish. Most of all I love the wine’s purity and subtle power. (Screwcap)
