Grasshopper Rock Central Otago Pinot Noir 2009

by Phil Handford

  • The whole vineyard is dedicated exclusively to the production of this first class, single-vineyard Pinot Noir, which has lashings of ripe, rich red cherry fruit, with an earthy kick of smoky licorice.
  • The first ever vintage of this wine was awarded an astonishing 92 points by Robert Parker - which for a new kid on the block is nothing short of stellar.
  • This is a cracking match for a delicious piece of duck breast, preferably with a big plate of fries lying alongside it.
