Rock Ferry Trig Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir
We're not saying this is DRC, but if you enjoy premium aged cru Burgundy and don't want to spend upwards of $500, we think you'll enjoy this single-vineyard Pinot Noir from Central Otago, New Zealand. Tertiary aromas of mushroom and forest floor compliment soft textures and flavors of cranberry, cherry, and spices, leading to a complex earthy finish.
Rock Ferry is one of New Zealand's premier certified organic wineries.
“Complex, enticing, varietal and balanced bouquet. A bouquet that suggests integration and harmony. Aromas and flavors of fresh and preserved cherry, some raspberry and red currant combinations then sweet and spices of oak along with a roasted cashew nut quality. There’s a floral statement from oak and place that demands attention. Dry, complex, balanced and well made, an abundance of fine tannins with a mix of barrel spice then contrasting core fruit flavors that reflect the bouquet.” – Cameron Douglas, MS, 94/100 points
