New Zealand has never had to ask What is Red Wine as this small country has been producing medal-winning wines for decades. Timeless Wines carry some of the best reds in the world hailing from vineyards on the north and south island.
The Margrain Pinot Noir Rivers Edge 2008 is a single estate wine that was produced by artisan winegrowers which means that every vintage is different. The 2008 was harvested in two halves, with the early batches being tannic and dry, and high in extract meaning it will take a few years to reach its peak, while the second batch, because of heavy autumn rain, was not picked until much later. This resulted in a much softer, lighter drop.
Hailing from Malborough, the 2010 Kennedy Point Syrah resembles a northern Rhone wine, which is fermented with Viognier. The full-bodied red is structured with spicy fruit and aged for 19 months in French Oak. Pick up a bottle or two from Timeless Wines, and keep it in the cellar for up to eight years. Kennedy Point also produces a fruity Pinot Noir that has been aged for 15 months in French Oak. The earthy characteristics that is typical of a Noir, display delicious flavors of red cherry and ripe strawberry.
Sherwood Estate in Waipara Valley on the South Island of New Zealand operates five vineyards and has been in operation since the late 1980’s. Fully accredited as a sustainable winegrower, the team of wine makers maximizes the potential of every grape that is grown in the vineyard, and the Vinterra Point Pinot Noir is no exception. Displaying sweet ripened plum notes with a distinct edge of complexity, it is round and rich. Expect dark berry, cherry and strawberry fruit flavors, that pairs deliciously with meat dishes.
