Amisfield Pinot Noir 2005 wine review by (PB)
This highly touted New Zealand Pinot from the central Otago has pronounced aromas of Pinot fruit with sour dried cherries and light cocoa that fades and then rises again.
Palate--Slightly tart milk chocolate, tannins and light fruit that tapers off.
This Pinot is clearly in the new world style where a crisp presentation is what its all about. It really is quite a different wine than what you might find in Burgundy but then again, you don't have to mortgage your home to buy one either. I believe (NW) paid about $35 for this quaff and raise a glass we did!
