Quartz Reed 2017 Bendigo Estate Single Vineyard Pinot Noir
This creation is a combination of blueberries, plums, violets, black olives and some baking spice. The spiciness of it is well balanced with the fruity taste that gives it a distinct taste and aroma. Renowned winemaker Rudi Bauer created this wine using biodynamic practices.
It is said to be one of the best, if not the best, in the Bendigo region. You can buy a bottle of this today for only $40 to $45.
Maison L’Envoye 2017 Pinot Noir
The Maison 2017 is a New Zealand treasure and one of the most affordable wine products there is. To make this wine, one must use the whole bunch approach also known as the whole cluster.
When it comes to crushing grapes, some people take away all the stems, while others keep them. Those items add more flavour and that is what they did with this one. Maison 2017 has a fruity taste made up of plums, blueberries and rhubarb preserves. The retail price of this one is only $30.
Seresin 2014 Sun & Moon Pinot Noir
This one has a retail price of $125. It might be a little expensive, but it is one of the best, if not, the best Pinot Noir in all of New Zealand. Another biodynamically produced wine. This wine was created by filmmaker Michael Seresin.
He combined red berry, rose petals, orange bitters and sanguine to reach that savoury and fruity taste. You’ll get fine tannins from this wine which is one of its best characteristics.
You can order these products from Domaine Jaquiery today.
