Today Wines of New Zealand showcased 161 wines from all the major regions. Most of the Pinot Noirs were from the 2015 vintage though there were several 2014s and odd older vintages being poured as well.
I decided to focus my attentions on the reds today while fleetingly drifting in and out of the Sauvignon Blanc 2016s and Chardonnay 2015s to freshen my palate.
The below wines are my Top 10 scoring Pinot Noir reds… all worth buying!
Special mention for my “Alternative Red of the day”… the Hans Herzog Family Estate Wirau Valley Tempranillo 2012 at 14 Abv.
And lastly, my “New Discovery of the day” goes to the tantalising, Felton Road Vin Gris Pinot Noir Bannockburn 2016 at 14 Abv.
