Roaring Meg Pinot Noir 2014

It has been awhile since I have been able to drink from the Mtn..
absolutely lovely bouquet of grape fruit mixed with wet bark, mmmmmmm

Bramble, blackberry seed, smoked herbs. Lively tannins dancing with humbled acids. Mmmmmmmm

I have never had a bad wine from central Otago!

Adelaide Hills Pinot Noir 2016

Fruity(raspberry and strawberry ), little smokey, incense, loads of freshness combined with an amazing searing minerality
Goes down quickly and it doesn't hurt too much neither to the head or the pocket
I guess a little bottle age might smoothen the edges
