Lowburn Ferry Central Otago Pinot Noir 2021 $45

Paired with Annabel Langbein’s Cheesy Corn and Pesto Polenta Bake in the NZ Herald  July 29th 2023

While it might seem a touch odd to see a red wine in your glass next to a dish like this. All that herbaceous pesto and cheesy corn should surely demand something squinty-fresh and white, yet the second you gulp a glug of this softly-spiced, earthy, baked cherry-laced pinot noir. Subtle and savoury, it has soothing, finely-tuned tannins which add texture and toothsome complexity to the finish. Sipping this accentuates the sweetness of the corn. Try it!
