2006 Aurum Wines Mathilda Reserve Central Otago Pinot Noir
13.9% alc., $36, screw cap. Imported by Via Pacifica Imports, Sebastopol, CA. A reserve wine named after the first born child of the winemakers. Matured in French oak for 10 months. · Very fragrant red fruit and baking spices. Delicate and silky with admirable elegance. The red fruits are demure and want for intensity. Currently the nose trumps the flavors but this one deserves another look in several months. Reviewed October 13, 2008 ARTICLE »
