click to enlarge wineofweek-1.jpg

Grapes for this enchanting wine were developed from a combination of Burgundian Pommard and Dijon clones sourced from hillside vineyards in one of the most exciting growing areas for Pinot Noir, New Zealand's Central Otago. In the glass, complex aromas of vibrant red fruit with earth notes and a slight herbal character lead into velvety layers of crushed berries and dried cherry with thyme and spice notes. Drink it now with lamb and veal dishes, roasted game and fowl, grilled tuna, salmon and cheese. Buy it at: Cork & Bottle, Rouses Uptown and Super Laborie's Food Market. Drink it at: Restaurant August, Court of Two Sisters, The Lake House Restaurant, Juniper Restaurant and Obelisk Wine Bar and Art Gallery. — Brenda Maitland
