Wine of the Week NZ

Lowburn Ferry The Ferryman Reserve Pinot Noir 2014, Central Otago, NZD $85

A barrel selection made only in exceptional vintages. More intense in both aroma and flavour than the regular label. Rich and quite intense wine with ripe plum and dark cherry flavours supported by a generous influence of smoky oak. Quite a textural wine, with good weight and a lengthy finish. (Screwcap)
