Middle-Earth Pinot Noir 2014

$263.40 (per Case)

Price per Bottle: $21.95

Red summer fruits, cherries, and sweet spice combine with softly smoky oak in this succulent, approachable wine. Gentle oak tannins and the tasty fruit flavours result in a smooth mouth-filling wine with good length and a softly-warming spicy finish. A perfect accompaniment to red meat, game dishes and particularly mushroom-based sauces.

The quiet village of Brightwater in Nelson is the location of our family Estate and Vineyards.
For over 50 years our family has lived and worked here, with a long history of involvement in our community. Established  for over 15 years our vineyards yield some of New Zealand’s most freshly scented, intensely flavoured wines that are recognized for being wonderfully drinkable and that stand apart from the typical commercial styles. Nelson is situated in the geographical middle of New Zealand at the top of the South Island and is the sunniest region in New Zealand.
