Aurora Vineyard Pinot Noir

The Aurora Vineyard is a relatively new vineyard in Central Otago with exceptional promise. The 2007 Aurora Vineyard Pinot Noir embodies deep black cherry flavours. The wine has quite a big body, but is very lively nonetheless. This wine has a long expanding finish (the Burgundian fan), supported by firm, but also charming tannins. This wine is perfect to drink now.

If you can get hold of a bottle, it is well worth the effort. This may be difficult, however. This business has been run part-time, and has taken a different turn in the last couple of years. I am not sure if the label is still independently produced.

Score: 95/+++
