Misha's Vineyard 2008 The High Note Pinot Noir
Misha Wilkinson's Central Otago pinots noir have built up a considerable following in New Zealand - and subsequently in Asia - and now have major distribution in Australia through Fesq and Co. All three pinots in the range were impressive but this was the one I would choose to drink right now. It's on the bigger side of the spectrum at 14.2% alcohol but its a metrosexual wine with beautiful balance and everything in place. You'll find black and red berry notes, some spice, moccha hints and lovely softness on the finish. Drink now, or cellar. Your call. $51. www.mishasvineyard.com.
