2013 Shaky Bridge Pinot Noir Pioneer Series
We poured this at a private event featuring only New Zealand wines and the Shaky Bridge was up against some that were 3-4 times the price. You wouldn't believe how many people after tasting would come up and say, "this is the high-end one, right?" For this price with a few years of age, and after selling 200 bottles all ready, this is our best buy Pinot Noir of the year. A complete snapshot of the strides that New Zealand is taking and and where the quality of this region is heading too. Really a fantastic Pinot Noir no matter how you slice it. See our original offer below...
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 Southernmost 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 without 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.
Jancis Robinson (Tamlyn Currin) 17 points! "Sustainable wine growing. The de-stemmed and lightly crushed high quality grapes from 4 different blocks within the Alexandra Basin were cold soaked in stainless-steel tanks for seven days. Primary fermentation took place at warm temperatures and the wine was 'pumped over' several times a day giving it maximum colour and ?avour extraction. Malolactic fermentation was in a mixture of old and new French oak barrels for 10 months prior to bottling. Still plenty of purple, although a translucent fine colour. Very juicy and intense and ripe red berries on the nose and the palate. Full of bright tang and crunchy acidity, lending length and finesse. Barely a brush of tannins. Vivid. (TC)"
