Coal Pit Proprietor’s Reserve Sauvignon Blanc 2018 Central Otago
Very pungent high impact bouquet packed with aromas of sweet grass and tropical fruits, fruit spice and wood spice, some barrel ferment, roasted fruits and burnt butter. Dry weighty wine on the palate with flavours of yellow stone fruit, roasted pineapple, and wood spices. Light creamy texture, plenty of acidity and lengthy characterful finish. With or without food - a lovely wine. Drink now and through 2022.
Coal Pit Tiwha Pinot Noir 2017 Central Otago
Fragrant, fruity, varietal, spicy and attractive bouquet of Pinot Noir. Dark cherry and cinnamon, old raspberry and cedar-wood, English tea and a hint of bacon (wood). Dry, varietal and fruity on the palate with flavours that mirror the nose. Fine abundant tannins, medium+ acidity and lengthy balanced finish. Drinking young - a cellar happy wine. Best drinking from late 2020 through 2026.
