Pegasus Bay Pinot Noir Canterbury Main Divide Tipinui Selection 2008
On release the wine is a bright ruby colour. It has aromas and flavours reminiscent of red fruits such as raspberries, blackberries and purple plums. These are supported by underlying savoury hints of grilled bacon, mushrooms and black olives. It has good fruitiness in the mouth and a thread of spiciness, which sinuously winds its way through the palate and ends the long after-taste. While ready to drink on release the wine should continue to gradually develop and unfold over several years with careful cellaring.
