Wine Orbit Reviews: February 2019

  • Published in Blog

Here are a couple reviews by Sam Kim of Wine Orbit on two recently released vintages!

2017 Mt. Beautiful Pinot Noir
94 points, 5 stars
It is gorgeously fruited and expressed on the nose showing dark cherry, spiced plum, floral and almond characters with hints of game and mushroom. The palate is concentrated and refined, displaying lovely fruit purity together with subtle savoury nuances, beautifully framed by polished tannins. Wonderfully composed and styled. At its best: now to 2025. $32.00. www.mtbeautiful.co.nz. Dec 2018.

2017 Mt. Beautiful Pinot Gris
94 points, 4.5 stars
A lovely elegant rendition; the delicately fragrant bouquet shows white flesh stone fruit, fresh pear, blossom and spice aromas, followed by a finely textured palate that is pristine and flowing. The wine is restrained yet flavoursome with attractive fruit flavours, backed by refreshing acidity. At its best: now to 2021. $24.00. www.mtbeautiful.co.nz. Dec 2018.
