Lush cherry fruit, plum, oak spices & mild toastyness.

2013 Wooing Tree Pinot Noir

Central Otago

Ripe hand picked fruit, gentle winemaking and maturation in French oak have resulted in a complex and powerful wine, with aromas of ripe cherries, plums and a hint of spicy complexity. On the palate, this wine has supple, soft and textural tannins with good weight and persistence. Excellent value, drinking fantastically well now and will develop and cellar for several years.

Smoked Salmon Poke Bowl

Succulent smoked salmon balanced by a crunchy, zesty slaw on a bed of salad greens and brown rice. This dish is the perfect lunch or light dinner to pair with New Zealand Sauvignon Blanc or Chardonnay.
