Pinot Noir 2013 kicked off today in sunny Wellington and has attracted pinotphiles worldwide to discuss, debate and savour this unique variety.

So in support of this mysterious and delicious drop, we’ve selected a few favourites that we thoroughly enjoy, and hope you will too.

Porter’s Estate 2011 Martinborough

Medium-bodied, the flavours of this Wellington local are an amalgam of red berries, aromatic spices and red florals, enlivened by fine, lacy and racy acidity.

Seresin ‘Leah’ 2009 Marlborough

This bio – dynamic Pinot is a fine-structured and slightly sappy wine with supple tannins and an assortment of spice, floral, savory and cherry flavours.

Craggy Range ‘Bendigo’ 2010 Central Otago

A very pure Pinot Noir with fine, dense floral and cherry/berry flavours.

Pegasus Bay 2009 Waipara

Demonstrates impressions of black cherries, blackberries, raspberries and mulberries are underlain with savoury notes hinting of mushrooms, smoky barbequed meats

Clos Salomon Givry 1er CRU Burgundy

We couldn’t dimiss the fine craft and long history of French wine makers. This wine is a dark cherry colour, with lots of fruit and wood. The acidity present makes for a well balanced wine with nice minerality

Wycroft Reserve 2009 Wairarapa

An elegant palate shows intense dark fruit and savoury notes, of good weight and length.
