Unfortunately it was oxidized. I thought #newworld #newzealand and #screwcap even if it’s 2011 it should be perfect...not the case. It was gone. Optimum Storage

Very smooth. Toasted marshmallow. Subtle smoke and sweet finish. Beautiful Pinot.

Baked earth, earthy with a hint of barnyard. Mineral, light, some depth.

White pepper and red fruit on the nose. Light medium body with a nice intensity for a Pinot. Bell pepper and minerals give way to a peppery finish.

A decent variant of Central Otago Pinot. Some nice fruit development and structure, but not too complex on the nose (which was in stark contrast to the 2016 we had that had a killer complex nose but was flat - probably too young). The 2013 here is a nice pairing for fresh Te Anau venison...

A nose that made me super excited to taste it, but the drinking fell flat. This one may be too young (2016) as it just seemed dumb and lifeless.
