Dog Point 2012 Pinot Noir

This is a multiple award winner from a Marlborough, New Zealand, winery owned by former Cloudy Bay grape growers and winemakers who favour organic farming methods. It is a delightfully complex and interesting pinot noir with violets and savoury notes on the nose leading on to a palate on which bright red fruit takes the lead with well-integrated French oak and soft tannin structure. A serious wine of immediate drinkability that would be great matched with game meats or mushroom dishes. $45. www.dogpoint.co.nz
