Dry River Pinot Noir 2008
Neil McCallum is one of the Martinborough wine region pioneers planting his vineyards on the free-draining gravelly terrace in the Wairarapa in 1979. Dry River quickly established a reputation as one of the finest producers in the country producing Riesling, Chardonnay, Gewurztraminer, Viognier, Syrah and Pinot Noir. McCallum retired in 2011 and the winemaking duties have been taken over by Wilco Lamb with Robert Willis and his team tending the vines. The vision of Neil McCallum is in good hands and Dry River continues to be one of New Zealand's most sought after wines.
Strong, sweet fruit with intense ripe cherry, plum, Oriental spices and classy oak. A formidable wine with layers of flavours that build toward its lengthy finish. This seriously impressive wine must silence critics who suggest that Dry River Pinot Noir lacks varietal character. Rating: 95 Points Bob Campbell; Master of Wine
