South Island Pinot Noir

Bell Hill Vineyards

Canterbury Pinot Noir 2012

We opened the bottle for an hour before dinner. Initially a powerful aroma of blackberries flooded the dining room. Slowly it mutated to black and red cherries with earth. Multi layered complexity the wine was an absolute pleasure to drink with. If you look at QPR it would@blow all burgundies out of the water! Simply sensational! — 6 days ago

Waipara Pinot Noir 2020

A producer new to me but a district I love as in Waipara or Canterbury north of Christchurch in the South Island of New Zealand. Wonderful red fruited aromatics with minerality, freshly tilled soils, compost heap (Sous Bois) and various spices. From gravel soil vineyards in North Canterbury. Aged in French Oak barrels for about 18 months. No fining or filtration. Canterbury flies under the radar for many wine lovers but I can assure you it is a source of high quality Pinot Noir and Chardonnay. Bell Hill is worth seeking out. — a month ago

3rd Rock Central Otago Pinot Noir 2014

Fantastic pinot. A cherry, suprising cola and eucalyptus or dried herbs. And acidity is the key. — 21 days ago
