THE BEST VALUE CENTRAL OTAGO PINOT IN THE NEW ZEALAND MARKET TODAY
FIVE STARS 93/100 | Sam Kim - Wine Orbit. "...silky texture and polished tannins, finishing long and delectable."
Crafted by one of Central Otago's most awarded and respected producers* and vinted to sell under their own famous label in the $30 bracket, this is the fourth and undoubtedly the best Pinot Noir we have released under our Big Villa RESERVE label. Produced from a range of vineyards across the region this is generously proportioned Pinot Noir with mouthfilling dark cherry flavours and pillow-soft tannins. If you loved the 2018 we know that you will be over the moon with this new vintage. In our view it is clearly the best value Central Otago Pinot Noir in the New Zealand market today.
*Big Villa Reserve is an Advintage brand. To protect their brand integrity, we are unable to divulge the name of the winery who produced this wine.
This is a big, generous Pinot Noir. Look for classic Central Otago flavours of dark spicy cherry with plush mouthfeel, creamy acidity and gentle tannin structure. Already harmonious and soft on the palate this wine has been vinted to be enjoyed in its youth but has the presence and structure to develop over the next 5 years.
Sam Kim writes "FIVE STARS 93pts. Splendidly fruited and gorgeously fragrant, the bouquet shows dark cherry, Black Doris plum, toasted spice and almond characters with a touch of mushroom complexity. The palate delivers succulent fruit intensity and beautifully rounded mouthfeel, wonderfully complemented by silky texture and polished tannins, finishing long and delectable"
Tried this for a weddding - was dubious at this price but it was DELICIOUS!!!
Another great vintage
This was my favourite Central Pinot last year and this vintage is another knockout - keep it up Advintage.
Love this Pinot Noir. Such a great price for the quality.
An excellent example of central Otago Pinot Noir. 5/5 Advintage!
