Montana Pinot Noir 2007


An update! A wine review! Finally! For all the thousands of readers, here is a new review! I got this nice little Pinot Noir from Waitrose today. I was looking for two wines from New Zealand. A pinot noir and a sauvignon blanc. I wanted to test them. This is from the big Montana producer and it is the slightly cheaper Pinot Noir (they also had the reserve one) which is yet still quite expensive. Well it travelled around 20,000 miles or so to arrive at my dinner table, no wonder. This wine, as I expected, was quite different to a Burgundy Pinot Noir, or indeed a Californian Pinot Noir, it almost does not taste like pinot noir. On the nose is young fruit, cherry almost but also oak. The taste is much sweeter than the Burgundy pinot noirs. Typical new world, and if I did not know it was pinot noir, I probably would have guessed a different grape variety. It is particularly easy to drink. I think the taste is of cherry, liquorice, wood, grapes, grapes, grapes and grapes. Yeah, great review. Well but I liked the wine!
