Three unusual and unique Pinot Noirs from across the globe, perfect for any devoted and curious lover of the varietal!
Wine 1: Mahana Estates Nelson Pinot Noir “Woolly’s Corner & Cornelia’s Nine” 2014
92/100 – Bob Campbell
Tasting Note: In this 2014 beast there is a whole bunch usage of 60% and immediately you can identify with the rich seamless nature of this wine. It has a velvet like mouth feel along with cherry mocha characters. It is decadent, earthy…perhaps even carnal? The wine has spent 12 months in 25% new French barriques before being racked and returned to old barriques for a further 6 months maturation. This is a pinot noir that has a winemaker reaching for his sword.
Region: Upper Moutere, Nelson, New Zealand
Wine 2: Meyer-Nakel Spatburgunder ‘G’ 2014
Tasting Note: Barrique-aged in old barrels. Almost pungent floral nose then lots of bright red fruit married with darker cherry notes. Very firmly structured yet still with an elegant and gentle disposition. A taut acid backbone runs through the mid-palate, which results in a fresh, clean back palate mouthfeel. A perfect marriage of Burgundian finesse with forward-thinking, modern winemaking.
Region: Ahr Valley, Germany
Wine 3: Vinteloper Pinot Noir 2016
Tasting Note: Perfume of cherry, mineral earth, florals & spice lead out with aplomb. The freshness & vibrancy immediately apparent as you ease into the palate. Layered & complex cherry, plum & berry fruits emerge then the second wave, minerality again, with thyme, cinnamon & wood smoke. Unfurling as smooth as silk!
Region: Adelaide Hills, South Australia
