Mt Difficulty Roaring Meg Pinot Noir
Mt Difficulty is one of Central Otago's oldest and most prestigious vineyards. Having tamed the rugged region since 1992, Mt Difficulty produce wines of utmost character and charm. Their Roaring Meg Pinot Noir shows lovely perfumed blackberry and dark cherry fruits along with a hint of spice. On the palate the wine has a sweet berry character along with balanced, ripe textural tannins that rise gracefully out of the mid-palate to finish the wine.
Erath Estate Pinot Noir
Great Oregon Pinot Noir is something we've been crying out for for quite some time. To be able to offer Erath Pinot Noir, a winery that sits in the heart of the iconic Willamette Valley, is truly exciting. With a climate almost identical to France's Burgundy, the 45th parallel delivers once again. Ripe fruit characters range from raspberry to cherry with more than a hint of savoury spice and earth. A wine of real finesse and beauty that will drink well into the mid 2010s.
Quinson Mercurey Pinot Noir
Quinson's Mercury Pinot Noir is sourced from the Côte Chalonaise region in the south of Burgundy. This wine has an intense aromatic nose which displays cherry liqueur notes infused with hints of pepper followed by a smooth and balanced palate with a slight alcoholic touch. The fine and polished tannins ensure a long lasting finish.
Stonier Pinot Noir
Stonier produces one of the most consistent Pinots from the Mornington Peninsula. Attractive plum and cherry flavours are enhanced by some gamey undertones and smoky oak influence. Perfect with duck.
Tomboy Hill Rebellion Pinot Noir
Since 1984 Ian Watson has been piecing together a patchwork of vineyards, all extreme quality. The Rebellion Range is a blend of all, still 100% Ballarat. The nose has blue cheese, truffles, earthiness, cherries and strawberries, with a hint of French oak. The palate still has good fruit, along with some savoury characters, lovely line and length with a good dry finish.
Mystery 94 Point Elegant Tasmanian Pinot Noir
Rabbit Ranch Central Otago Pinot Noir
Central Otago Pinot's are generally more user-friendly than Burgundy; Rabbit Ranch is very soft fruit-forward style with soft tannins; best enjoyed young.
Journey Wines Pinot Noir
Damian North uses fruit from the cool, Upper Yarra Valley to craft his Journey Wines Pinot Noir. And Journey is the right word. Before he studied winemaking, North was sommelier at landmark Sydney restaurants Tetsuyas and Pier at Rose Bay. He followed his Pinot mojo to Oregon (after a few years at TarraWarra) and spent three years making nothing but at Benton-Lane Winery. He then spent five years at Leeuwin Estate in Margaret River. The journey came full circle when he arrived back in the Yarra Valley and attracted immediate attention with the fine Pinot Noir (and Chardonnay) he made in the difficult 2011 vintage.
Cloudy Bay Pinot Noir
An enticing wine that will awaken your senses from the very first encounter. Leather, boysenberry and sweet spices combine. The supple palate with its transparent flavours of red fruit and earthy textures leads to a finish that is both balanced and intriguing.
Tomich Hill Pinot Noir
Intense berry and red cherry aromas vibrant lend themselves to the palate of dark berry and cherry with subtle hints of dry herbs and silky soft graceful tannins.
Russian Jack Marl Pinot Noir
Crisp red fruit complimented by a pleasant acidity and fine tannins that follow through to the finish.
