em8305 reviewed Mohua Pinot Noir Otago 2008 on April 6, 2011

This is one of the best pinot noirs I've had in a long time. Light bodied with bright red berries and earth notes on the nose. On the palate, this wine explodes with raspberry, strawberry, and spice flavors. Mohua Pinot Noir is very fresh and vibrant, has a long, smooth finish, and is a great summer time red! Pairs well with wild salmon, pizza with goat cheese, and wood grilled filet mignon. Absolutely delicious!


This is a medium bodied, complex Barbera! Hints of oak and blackberry on the nose with a strong clove flavor on the attack. Mid-palate there are some very nice spice, chocolate, and plum notes. The wine has a fantastic ripe berry finish. This barbera will pair well with a smoky barbecue dish or blackened salmon.

This is a great spring time white! Intense floral and fruit aromas on the nose. Dry, crisp, and clean on the palate with notes of peach and a hint of minerality. This wine is well rounded with a soft yet long finish. I would recommend this wine with risotto, grilled chicken or pork, or pretty much any seafood, however it is able to be drank by itself as well.
