Paul Henry and Invivo are releasing a new limited edition Central Otago Pinot Noir this Friday, 6 November , available exclusively at Glengarry stores and online, and available to order now.
The wine has just received its first accolade: 93 points, 5 stars from Wine Orbit: â€śYouthfully charming and delightfully inviting, the wine shows Black Doris plum, sweet cherry, floral, almond and subtle spice aromas on the nose, leading to a succulent palate delivering terrific fruit purity and persistency. It’s silky and flowing to a lengthy delectable finish. At its best: now to 2025.â€ť
A blend of Pinot Noir from Northburn, Bannockburn and Gibbston vineyards in Central Otago, the result of Paulâ€™s third spell at the blending bench is a wine that punches well above its recommended retail price of $30. Punchy dark fruits, confected cherries and espresso roast lead to a deep palate full of sweet fruit, expansive mouthfeel, youthful tannins, juiciness and a long finish.
In Paulâ€™s words, the â€śThe final result must be more than the sum total of its partsâ€¦ and it is. The individual parts are magnificent. Together they sing.â€ť
Glengarry is expecting demand for Paul Henryâ€™s Pinot Noir V3 to be great after his first Pinot sold out within three hours of going on sale in 2016; the fine wine retailerâ€™s server crashed shortly after the wine went on sale due to demand. The 2017 vintage was also extremely popular and didn’t last long.
Paul will be tasting in-store and signing bottles at Glengarry Victoria Park on Friday 6 November from 3.30pm â€“ 5pm. He will also be tasting in-store at other Glengarry stores in Auckland and in Wellington in December.
Pre-order Paulâ€™s Pinot Noir V3 online now here www.glengarrywines.co.nz/paulhenrypinot.Â Only 140 cases were made and so this wine will not be available at Invivoâ€™s Online Store.
