Te Kano Estate Central Otago Pinot Noir 2019 $49

Paired with: Slow Baked Mushrooms by Annabel Langbein in Canvas Magazine NZ Herald July 16 2022

I’ll be honest. There are some weeks when I’m literally just a slow-baked mushroom away from performing seppuku on myself over the state of things. Yet what soothes my synaptic connections even further is a silky glass of Central Otago pinot noir and this new release from Te Kano is all kinds of excellent. Crafted from fruit sourced from their Northburn and Bannockburn vineyards, this cherry-soaked style is laced with tobacco, dried thyme, tamarillo, smoked cocoa and truffle characters. So it’s magical with these mushies.
