Drink: Wild Earth Pinot Noir
Drink: Wild Earth Pinot Noir from Felton Road, Bannockburn. 2006 Wild Earth Pinot Noir won Top Wine at the 2008 International Wine Challenge in London out of 10,000 wines. It also won a slew of other awards as have many local wines. No cellar door but available in supermarkets and you can visit Mr Wild Earth himself (Quintin Quider) at his restaurant on the banks of the Kawarau River at the Goldfields attraction. The tasting menu is highly recommended not only the food and its presentation but also for the chance to try a variety of Quintin’s wines. The former abalone diver from California and his daughter Chelsea bring the terroir to life on a variety of fronts.
