New Zealand Pinot Noir # 1

First of the 6 Pinot Noir from way-down under. Chose a screw-top to save my energy for has been two weeks!!

Main Divide Pinot Noir 2006
Canterbury,New Zealand
A nose of light raspberry and some
dark cherry, bacon butty (sandwich for foreigners)...
dry, rustic...reminded me of a South Burgundy in the style of a Rully or Mercury...gentle opening..filled out on the palate..soft 'prickly' tannins..vibrant...light style.

Points 15.5
