Country: New Zealand
Region: Central Otago
Grape Variety: 100% Pinot Noir
Alcohol Percentage: 13.5%
Viticulture: Organic Practices
Color: Deep crimson red with purple hues
Nose: A fragrant bouquet of strawberry, blackberry and dark cherry are combined with a warming yet subtle oak spice
Palate: "Bright cherry spice, spicy savoury oak, succulent red fruits of cherry, plum spice" says Ben. So juicy! All the fruit aromas on the nose are carried through to the mid weight palate and balance beautifully with the toasty oak spice in the background. A gentle, lingering fruit finish gives this wine a well rounded, moreish mouthfeel.
Mr Glover Central Otago Pinot Noir 2021
Mr Glover is Ben Glover, Marlborough born and bred.
He was famous for making impressive wines for major NZ wineries for many years but really missed making small batches of artisan wine from his family vines. Thanks to angel fundings this wish of going back to his roots became reality.
With this second project, Ben is now on a mission to get his hands on a number of unique parcels of fruit from the most expressive vineyard sites in New Zealand. Then, placing his stamp on them with his signature hands off deftness to provide wines with a powerful sense of place.
