Riesling comes in many variations, from simple sweeter or
dryer styles to wild ferment in old oak, from ethereal
low-alcohol styles to fascinatingly complex wines with a
little bottle age. Check out the wine reviews on www.odt.co.nz for more wines from this
There's such variety in pinot noir depending on where it
comes from and how ripe the grapes are, how it is made and
whether it is aged or not - the 6-year old wine in this
tasting is drinking very well, but may not be to the taste of
those who like big fruity numbers.
Pinot noir usually needs a year or two to show its best, so
it's no wonder many of the 2013s in this tasting tasted
better a day or two after they were opened when they'd
mellowed and integrated a little.
