"Ripe, rich and stylish, this is a gorgeous Pinot with lovely fruit intensity together with subtle savoury notes on the nose, displaying dark cherry, spice, game and a hint of dried herb notes. The palate is juicy and concentrated with silky texture and a lengthy satisfying finish. A beautifully harmonised Pinot showing classic elegance as well as plenty of tasty flavours." Sam Kim, Wine Orbit
"Attractive wine presenting appealing Central Otago Pinot Noir characters of cherry and plum on the nose, supported by savoury mushroom complexity with hints of dried herbs. Elegant and textural on the palate, this wine has supple tannins with a persistent, lingering finish. An excellent complement to food, Mount Dottrel Pinot Noir 2009 will drink well while young, but will open up with careful cellaring." Winemakers Notes
Mount Dottrel presents classic Central Otago wines with an intensity of complex flavours that reflect the vineyard terroir. They are an honest expression of the character and genuine quality of Central Otago.
