Mt Beautiful North Canterbury Pinot Noir 2007

The guys from over the ditch really do make great wine! Without thinking about it, I have been finding my purchases leaning to the New Zealand isle in my local wine outlet. The Mt Beautiful North Canterbury Pinot Noir 2007 is such a super easy wine to drink. Plenty of dried spice and bramble fruit on the nose; this wine really hits its straps in the mouth with a gorgeous blend of spice, tart cranberry and lip smacking acid, but to get the most out of this wine, it really needs a good decanting – double decanter if you can. Two hours later the wine is totally unrecognisable with dense earthy aromas and dried tea on the nose with Burgundian funk flowing in layers in the mouth. If you see this wine, buy it! Mucho Fantastico
