New World Charm

The international reputation of NZ Pinot Noir continues to grow, with glowing features in both the Bradenton Herald and San Francisco Chronicle. The former article praises the grape’s “dark, earthy Burgundian profile with a little more consistency, a little more ripeness.” Burgundy expert Clive Coates agrees: “In the enologically short period of 20 years, an infatuated Pinot Noir has planted a big wet one on the lips of NZ,” he writes in the Chronicle. “If imitation is the sincerest form of flattery, Burgundy should feel pretty good about NZ’s efforts to capture the aromatic, alluring, elegant, mercurial personality of red Burgundy in its Pinot Noirs. The wines aren’t Burgundies, but they’re pretty darn close.”
