2018 Mt. Beautiful Sauvignon Blanc

"Offers an appealing core of intense, lush flavors of ripe melon and peach, with details of white pepper, honeysuckle and ruby grapefruit lingering on the finish. Impressive for the intensity and focus. Drink now."
- MaryAnn Worobiec

The Best Wines to Drink this Winter

  • Published in Blog

By Michael Cooper, Noted 

Here is Michael Cooper’s pick of full-bodied reds and whites for cool weather drinking. Mt. Beautiful's 2017 Pinot Noir is proud to represent the only red wine producer from North Canterbury on his list! 

"Fresh, light white wines and rosés taste great in summer’s heat, but when the weather cools, full-bodied, richly flavoured styles taste better and better. Weighty, complex white wines, especially chardonnays, but also sturdier styles of pinot gris and oak-aged sauvignon blancs, really hit the spot. Pinot noir is popular year-round, but in summer, more powerful reds can taste too heavy. During the depths of winter, however, when hearty, rich food is in demand, flavour-crammed reds can be the perfect partner.

Michael's review: 
This is a classy young red, worth cellaring. Estate-grown at Cheviot, it is deep ruby, fragrant and full-bodied, with plummy, gently spicy and herbal flavours, concentrated, complex and savoury."

Here's their review: 
“This Cheviot based vineyard is really hitting its chardonnay chops now that the vines are getting a little older. "I love the creamy aromatics and complxity of this wine," noted Yvonne, while Colin was captured by the lemon blossom nose and the elegance and restraint shown on the palate weight."
