Wine Style Guide
Red wines that are more fruit-forward and lighter in tannin and body.
Medium bodied reds that go down easy, with smooth tannins and supple fruit.
Wines where earthy and/or spicy dominate the flavors – typically medium to full body.
Full bodied wines that have concentrated fruit and are higher in alcohol and/or tannins. Some need age.
Alcohol By Volume: 13.5%
Alcohol By Volume Guide
Most wine ranges from 10-16% alcohol by volume. Some varietals tend to have higher (for example Zinfandel and Cabernet Sauvignon) or lower alcohol levels (Pinot Noir and many white varietals), but there is always some variation from producer to producer. Some wine falls outside of this range, for instance Port weighs in closer to 20%, while Muscat and Riesling are usually a bit below 10%.
The 2009 Mohua Pinot Noir has aromas of violets, dried fruits and cherry. The palate has sweet cherry, plum and raspberries with full mouth feel, fine tannin structure and a long warm finish.
"Ripe, juicy raspberry and cherry flavors are fresh and refreshing, with a great tangy acidity. Fresh herb and minerally sea salt details come in on the finish. Drink now through 2019."
"Palish bright red. Lively, high-pitched aromas of cherry, raspberry, smoke and flowers. Nicely concentrated and complex, conveying a strong impression of solid soil-driven extract to go with its red fruit and smoke flavors. Sweet tannins are nicely supported by the wine's stuffing. The finish is classically dry and salty."

Learn About Central Otago
The southernmost vineyards of the world lie here in Central Otago. Unlike most other New Zealand appellations, Central Otago is inland - nestled right in the middle of the southern island. Its lack of proximity to water creates weather more continental than maritime, leading to big temperature shifts - hot during the day, significantly cooler at night.
