2015 Tongue in Groove, Cabal Vineyard, Waipara, North Canterbury, New Zealand
£27.50 £22.95 per bottle
If I am to understand correctly, Angela Clifford is the tongue and Lynette Hudson is the groove; or perhaps it is the other way around. Lynette is a good pal of mine and there are few winemakers in New Zealand who can hold a torch to her skill and dexterity. Not content with making predictable Kiwi Pinot each year, she pushes the boundaries in search of perfection. The wine utilises a bold 40% of whole bunches and this makes for a toothsome, fiercely characterful wine. It’s as honest and true to its origins as you will find and it will give you a glimpse of just how hard the visionaries in NZ are working to crack the Pinot code.
