Wild Earth Earth & Sky Pinot Noir 2019
- Textured, savoury
- Central Otago
This is one of the top pinots of an absolute mofo fave - Wild Earth. They are not only one of our favourites, but a darling of the wine media who absolutely love them. The best grapes from vineyards in the renowned Bannockburn area are the ingredients for this wine, along with a modest 22% new oak that’s judicious use really let’s the fruit shine. And shine it does - cherry and plum abound in vibrant spades, complimented by incense, cedar and wild thyme. All of the reviews mention the well-handled and abundant tannins - so get this wine into a decanter for the best experience.
“Offering grace and sophistication, this stunning rendition shows dark cherry, violet, thyme, toasted almond and subtle spice aromas on the nose, leading to a gorgeously weighted and rounded palate that displays flowing mouthfeel and silky tannins. It’s complex and multi-layered with sweet fruit and engaging savoury nuances, finishing impressively long and refined.”

Central Otago is the New Zealand's highest and the world's most southerly wine region at latitude 45°S. It has cold winters, hot summers, cool nights and low rainfall, and is ideally suited to Pinot Noir, which covers 80% of plantings. The rest is mainly planted to Chardonnay, with smatterings of Sauvignon Blanc, Riesling and Pinot Gris. Expect character and intensity as the hallmarks of this marginal region.
