Terra Sancta Mysterious Diggings Pinot Noir 2012
The wine is both very approachable and very sophisticated. The vibrant wine has a bright garnet color with blackberries, lavender, and wild thyme on the nose. The palate is beautifully layered with forest-fruit flavors, silky tannins, and vibrant acidity. It is long and luxurious in the mouth and perfect both as a wine for its own sake or with a wide spectrum of foods.
An early map of Bannockburn in Central Otago, New Zealand gave a small parcel of land the name 'Mysterious Diggings.' A vineyard of extreme beauty, high in the hills, the Diggings vineyard has sun-drenched, rocky terraces with soils heavy in native schist. This Pinot Noir is a single-vineyard wine, coming entirely from this vineyard. The wine's fragrance and dark cherry flavors reflect these unique vineyard soils. Simply delicious each handcrafted Mysterious Diggings wine by Terra Sancta receives meticulous care.
