We tasted through some of the Shaky Bridge Pinot Noir's, which we're all very impressive but the Pioneer Series really stood out. Shaky Bridge is located at the Southern most region in the world the Alexandra Basin in Central Otago, New Zealand. This wine has incredible concentration of fruit and structure with the ability to go for another 5 years with out issue. Cool red fruits of cranberry and cassis meld into an herbal base of tarragon, and rosemary. Crushed violets and opened up to cola nut and bramble berry notes. The palate has excellent fruit concentration and a pleasing texture that leads into a focused acidity and fine tannins. This is the best $20 Pinot Noir we have ever tasted or offered, and it has the ability to age another 3 to 5 years! These are the only US bottles,and the deal stems because the importer no longer works with the property. The 2017 vintage of this wine received a Wine Spectator 93 pts as well! A great Pinot Noir to my in quantity!
