Rippon Mature Vine Pinot Noir 2009, Lake Wanaka

Rippon Mature Vine Pinot Noir 2008“Keep some room in your heart for the unimaginable.” ~ Mary Oliver.

Cate was right – this bottle needed time for the essential transformation into something elegant and somewhat restrained. One of the very very few Central Otago Pinot Noir that had left an impression (thus far). No tasting notes here unfortunately, but if you’re cracking it open for the Rugby game this coming weekend, do that first thing in the morning on Sunday, or better still, the night before and seal the bottle with the original diam cork loosely. Oh, and get some food too 🙂
