WINE: 1 DECEMBER 2014

The Crater Rim 2012 Canterbury Pinot Noir

Canterbury NZ | $29

I’d be peddling mistruths if I said I’d never had a better pinot, but I can say that this comes very, very close to being the best for less than $30.

The colour isn’t huge, yet the wine simply explodes in the mouth with an abundance of lively berry flavours that do great service to roast duck.
