Central Otago is stunning, deep blue lakes, alpine valleys, towering mountains—all very grand.
The Grand Central Pinot Noir gives us the opportunity to blend small parcels of Pinot noir from across the region. Bright and ruby hued, the wine has the luscious sweet fruit of dark cherries and plum. French Oak balances and contributes lifted spice notes. The fine and savoury tannins provide a long and silky finish with good structure that lingers on the palate. Approachable and ready to drink now, the wine will further develop for 5-7 years from the harvest date.
92/100, Bob Campbell MW, www.bobswinereviews.co.nz and Gourmet Wine Traveller, July 2015. 100% from Quest’s own vineyard. Second label Pinot Noir with cherry, violet and a strong earth/spice savoury quality that reminded me of good Village burgundy. The wine has a drying structure of peppery tannins. An honest Pinot Noir that reflects place and vintage. Good food wine. Offers value at this price.
