In the last week we tasted three of the 'Best of the Best' Pinot Noirs from Central Otago on our Wine Tours. These are wines not to miss out on if you don't mind spending a bit more and looking for that special wine or Xmas present ...

Amisfield RKV 2012 ($120) - Wow, this is a blockbuster, not a term I normally use with Pinot Noirs but this is impressive stuff, and will go the distance for those who like to cellar there wines.

Mt Difficulty Single Vineyard Long Gully 2013 ($95) - One of several of the single vineyards Pinot Noir's from Mt Difficulty, it has an intense nose of Xmas Cake and Licorice with a rich voluptuous palate. With great tannin structure this is another keeper.

Carrick Excelsior 2013 ($95) - The best yet in my opinion from the limited release Excelsior series, mouth-wateringly rich with dark plum, cherry flavours, aniseed and licorice flavours, rich and complex. Drinking well now but a lifetime ahead.

Cheers
Philip

Whatever you think of Tripadvisor it is a great travelers tool and we are of the view that the majority of feedback is heartfelt and genuine. Of course we love it even more when we get consistently outstanding feedback for ourselves about our tours and our clients experiences.

For 5 years now we have received Tripadvisor's Certificate of Excellence - however this year the award came with a surprise as we were inducted into Tripadvisor's Hall of Fame for 2015.

Worth sharing a glass of fine Pinot with our great team!

Just tried two different vintages of Valli's Waitaki Pinot Noir from Grant Taylor. If you haven't been there yet find a bottle or two as there is something special happening down that neck of the Pinot Noir woods...  Sublime and ethereal Pinots.

Nice work, another great #PinotNoir from Akarua!
We are delighted to announce that Akarua Pinot Noir 2011 was awarded GOLD at this year’s Global Pinot Noir Masters in the UK. 
The UK competition has a reputation for being the toughest in the business, with many wines failing to reach the medals at all. Akarua Pinot Noir 2011 was one of the highest scores in the whole competition (90 Points)

The Gold and Silver Medals in particular were extremely hard won, as the judges awarded very few high scores, and no Sparkling Wines including some Champagnes, reached a higher medal than Silver. Akarua Brut NV, Akarua Rose Brut NV and Akarua Vintage Brut 2010 were all awarded silver (85 points/100). #GlobalPinotNoirMasters   #Akarua   #AkaruaPinotNoir   #GOLD   #NZWine   #Central   #Otago   #Bannockburn   #Feltonroad   #Lowburn
