There are Old Pinots and Bold Pinots – and some Old, Bold Pinots!

I have been rattling on in my Providence Winery Facebook page re two Pinots we have consumed over the past two nights:  A Black Estate from Waipara in NZ and our Providence Miguet Reserve Pinot Noir.  Both are 2001 vintage.  And both were “old bold Pinots”! Whilst I do have some of both, I am not able to sell the Black.  The 2001 Providence has held together beautifully with a still delicate nose, firm acid and earthy overtones. Full on the middle palate with a long aftertaste the wine is very much alive.  The oak which was a little aggressive when the wine was young (an abundance of new wood) has settled and integrated beautifully.  We can sell this wine to you for $70 bottle, with a limit of two per customer until it’s all gone.  Just call me on 0419 395 728 to place your order.  Very limited stocks!
