The Waitaki Valley, while being most famous as the hometown of New Zealand super-crush Richie McCaw, is one of the hidden wine regions that should definitely be on any wine enthusiasts wish list.
Its rich limestone soils and stunning scenery give the wines a special flavour profile that is all its own and today we’re tasting the 2015 Q Pinot Noir from this upcoming region.
Q Pinot Noir 2015
Elegant and refined, this Pinot Noir embodies the earthy undertones and minerals that interlace with dark berries, mocha, and herbs creating a wine of finesse.
One that subtlety touches on the lush fruit but gives it some backbone and nuance that is a bit like listening to a well performed piano concerto.
