Description

Crafted with fruit off 17–19-year-old estate vines by ‘World Champion Pinot Noir Winemaker’ Matt Connell… McArthur Ridge Brassknocker 2022 Pinot Noir took out Champion Trophy at London’s Annual International Wine Challenge (equal toughest wine show in the World) for “BEST’ NZ Pinot Noir… a shock result given the glittering lineup of Flagship NZ Pinots 3 to 5 times its price it competed against. It’s bigger sibling ‘Southern Tor’ claimed the same trophy in 2020 and swept all before it in NZ’s Top Wine Awards last year. Plus, it has just been awarded Platinum, 97/100 & “Best in Show” at the World’s other toughest wine show… Decanter World Wine Awards, also in London. While their vineyards cover 175 hectares... only a small percentage of carefully selected, handpicked grapes finish up in the hands of the Winemaker for their McArthur Ridge Label. With their phenomenal quality v price ratio and profound International Awards successes… McArthur Ridge Pinot Noirs have International Merchants scrambling for their order books. Stock up quickly if you would like to be drinking NZ’s “BEST” Pinot Noir of 2024 as judged at IWC in London at a phenomenally low price… for as long as you can.

Smells

Aromas over-flow the glass with heady notes of freshly foraged wild red berries, black cherry, cranberry, crushed fresh herbs, and a subtle salty lift. Beautifully intense, making you sit back and inhale deeply, again and again.

Tastes

A structured Pinot Noir with plush red and black fruits encased by grainy tannins in a framework consistent with excellent food compatibility and aging. The silky fruit is underpinned by fine savoury and cured meat complexities adding intrigue to its voluminous palate. Crammed with Central Otago charm encouraging early drinking. However, it has the necessary weight and structure to age beautifully through 2028-2030. At its unreal quality v price ratio… you’ll struggle to age it beyond this year. Serve with pasta, mushrooms, lamb or duck.
