Food Pairings for Quartz Reef Pinot Noir Central Otago
It is now well established that Central Otago is producing outstanding pinot noirs, with Quartz Reef being no exception. Situated in the heart of the Central Otago wine region, Quartz Reef produces and specialises in premium sparkling wine, Pinot Gris and Pinot Noir wines. Quartz Reef blends the proven winemaking talents of Austrian-born Rudi Bauer, whose pinot noirs have won a host of gold medals in New Zealand and Australia, and Clotilde Chauvet, whose family own the Champagne house of Marc Chauvet in France. Still, there is no doubt in Rudi's mind that to produce great pinot noir will take time. We are looking forward to the exciting journey to learn more about pinot noir, the expression of the vines and the development in the bottle. This Pinot Noir has a complex perfumed nose of dark berries with a pure, compact and densely flavoured palate of ripe forest fruit, herbal notes and earthy spice, followed by textural fine tannins. It pairs ideally with roast duck and lamb cutlets.
