Tatty Bogler Central Otago Pinot Noir 2013 $35 ★★★★

It might be named after a scruffy, Scottish scarecrow, but this pinot is pure class. Fresh, clean and showing nice lines of red fruits, cocoa and spice on the nose, the palate is followed by a juicy, long finish. Very nice indeed, and destined for more good things if you can be disciplined enough to keep it in the cellar. www.forrest.co.nz
