Waipara Pinot Noir 2008

SOUL OF THE SOUTH

At the ends of the earth, high in the mountainous region of New Zealand’s South Island, grows the Mountain Buttercup. Delicate and beautiful, it belies its harsh up bringing. Waipara Hills is part of the same wild landscape where wines have survived perilous winters to produce complex, elegant wines for you to enjoy.

By day intense sunshine and winds challenge their vines to survive, by night the temperatures drop dramatically and the vines shiver under the pale light of the Southern Cross. It is these contrasts that give this Pinot its complexity and character.

Lovely aromatics of lifted forest berries with hints of dried herbs and spices, light to medium weight with lovely berry fruit flavours, mouth quenching and refreshing. the wine was matured in stainless steel tanks to retain its fresh fruit character.

Perfect match for some classic French cuisines maybe try it with a Coq au vin, Boeuf Bourguignon and Cassoulet, or chilled with the summer BBQs that are coming our way iover the next few weeks!!!

NEW OFFER £6.99 bottle or £5.99 when buying 6 or more

(I wonder if Jeff Bezos has the same app on his phone?). Ignored it, rolled over and 5 minutes later it went again. And again. And etc, etc. Finally, before switching the thing off, curiosity got the better of me and I opened up the online shop to find a stream of orders for a wine that I fell in love with 2 years ago but that we had failed to make much headway with – Coteaux du Giennois, Terre de Silex from Clement & Florian Berthier,

Although the world has been turned upside down of late, Covid-19 hasn’t interrupted our Captain Kirk approach to wine-buying – seeking out new wines, new spirits and beers, boldly drinking what no man has drunk before. Ok, that may be a slight exaggeration
