Wither Hills 2008 Pinot Noir

Apparently there have been serious question marks over the quality of the 2008 vintage. In which case this is a classic example of why each wine should be judged on ITS merits rather than grouped with others from a vintage which may have been less than perfect.
This is a pinot noir of enticing flavour and perfect balance with an unusually deep intense colour for the variety. It's picked up a few Gold Medals and easily delivers quality in the $30+ realm.

I particularly love this quote from Ben Glover, Wither Hills Chief Winemaker

For me, making Pinot is the holy grail! It's the prince of all the classic varieties. It is notoriously fickle, yet worth all the blood, sweat and tears when you get it right. New Zealand Pinot Noir is the next global star and Marlborough will be at the forefront of this assault.
