Wild Earth Pinot Noir Central Otago 2008

Winemaker's Notes:

Wild Earth founder Quintin Quider is an expatriate Californian who spent many years living in the South Island and he has gathered a small, dedicated team to produce his Wild Earth range in Central Otago. This is one of the most unpredictable viticultural areas in the world where extremes of temperature make winemaking a challenge. This wine has generous berry and forest fruit on the nose, in a concentrated bouquet that leads you in to a richly textured palate with layers of intense, dark fruit and spices. The silky tannins complement a well structured wine with great length of flavour on the palate. Careful cellaring will see this wine develop wonderfully from rich fruit elements to more complex savoury tones.
