Description

Southern Tor Pinot Noir is from Mc Arthur Ridge in Alexandra... harvested from 15–20-year-old vines perfectly situated on an elevated plateau on gentle North facing slopes. This 2020 vintage is special, exciting Wine Judges Globally. Champion Trophy for “Best Central Otago Pinot Noir” + the Big Trophy for “Best NZ Red Wine” of Show... both at the iconic London “International Wine Challenge”. It backed that up with a massive 96/100 + Gold at the World’s equal toughest Wine Show... “Decanter World Wine Awards” in London. It doesn’t stop there with Champion Pinot Noir of Show + Gold at NZIWS. Compelling results from both sides of the Globe... from 3 different and important Shows and sets of Judges. Add in a FWD Tasting Panel 96/100... 5 Stars Michael Cooper & 94 Points Master Sommelier Cameron Douglas... you can absolutely bank on the “World Class” quality (and exceptional value) of this outstanding Central Otago Pinot Noir. The final clue to Southern Tor’s Global success is its making by Central Otago “World Champion” Pinot Noir winemaker “Matt McConnell”. This is World Class Kiwi Pinot that would sell for several times its price was it from Burgundy. Luscious in its youth... it will age easily for 10-years and be a stellar Pinot cellar bargain.

Smells

Deep aromas of dark berry and fresh dark cherry with subtle raspberry. Haunting floral and baking spice notes emerge from under the heady fruit.

Tastes

Instantly luscious and textural... a wave of black berry, plum and cherry layered with subtle sweet baking spices totally wow your taste buds. A balanced thread of toasty oak with hints of black forest Gateau and savoury game build charm and momentum as it culminates in a powerful, but elegantly dry finish. Enjoy this stunner with or without food.
