SOHO Estate Pinot Noir 12pk 2015
Rachael Carter founded the winery with the intention to create something that was sexy, fun and quality focussed - and she hasn’t let herself down. Family-owned vineyards from three of the best NZ wine regions combined with award-winning winemakers who are specialists in their realm, have resulted in 58 gold medals since the establishment of SOHO wines in 2009. With a focus on white, aromatic varieties and Pinot Noir, SOHO also offers a wider range of styles and price points for Chardonnay, Rosé and other red blends.
SOHO Estate Pinot Noir 2015
Marlborough Pinot Noir, I quite like it.” There’s a catchphrase for you. Puts me in mind of the New Zealand posters HERE in Flight of the Conchords.
Good clean fun, is what we have in the glass here. Cherry and raspberry, with a bit of stalk, tamarillo and sweet spice. Medium bodied, straight down the line red fruit and spice, that sappy savoury edge, and a finish of modest length. You’d go glass to glass, and be pretty happy drinking this, I’d say. Job done.
