Yvonne’s pick . . .


Crafted by Brendan Seal, (an alumni of Mt Difficulty, Mt Edward and Chard Farm, as well as working vintages in Cyprus, the United Kingdom and Oregon) in his inner city winery, smack-bang in central Dunedin. The Bristol Farm Central Otago Pinot Noir 2014 ($40) is luscious, loaded with gamey, savoury notes, wild cherry and all sorts of witch-crafty, wiccan wonderousn­ess. To this Hawke’s Bay-born taster, it smells like a deliriousl­y lovely combo of the seaweed dumped on the wilds of Waimarama beachroads­ide stall plums and the dusty, dried, leafy notes of the local green-waste depot, mixed with the lusciously slippery mouthfeel of some boy I remember pashing behind the Pakowhai Hall in 1988 who was wearing a Kozmik top well overdue for a wash. Think about that for a second. Good times.it works salubrious­ly with this salad for some reason. urbnvino.nz
