This flavourful Pinot from New Zealand’s Central Otago region is red Burgundy on steroids. Light purple in colour with a nose of raspberries, tomato leaf and rust, the wine is medium-bodied, elegant and dry with dense flavours of raspberry and dark chocolate. And a long, lingering finish. Food match: duck breast or grilled portobello mushrooms. (Vintages #61242)
