This week's wine pick is rich and full bodied, with hints of spice and dark cherry fruit notes
Thornbury Central Otago Pinot Noir
Central Otago, with its distinctive mountainous terrain and long growing season, provides stunning expressions of Pinot Noir. Beautifully perfumed and richly coloured, with aromas of dark cherry and lush plum, this seductively smooth pinot noir offers outstanding value.
Pinot Noir grapes that are grown on the dry, schist-derived soils of Bendigo make up the components of this single vineyard Thornbury Pinot Noir. Dry, hot summers and cool nights produce low yielding vines, ideal for the development of intense flavour and tannin.
Wild game, such as duck or venison, complement this wine perfectly.
