Additional Wine Information

Story
Mt. Beautiful takes its name from a landform that rises off the coastal hills of the North Canterbury region of New Zealand’s South Island. North Canterbury may not have the name recognition of other South Island regions such as Central Otago or Marlborough, but that didn’t prevent Mt. Beautiful founders David and Leigh Teece from being the first to plant in the area. The Teeces chose the Cheviot Hills of North Canterbury for its generally temperate climate mixing cool coastal nights with hot sunny days, with minimal rainfall during the growing season. In typical New Zealand fashion, the Teeces planted most of their gravelly, alluvial acreage to Sauvignon Blanc, but they also reserved quite a bit of their highest land for Pinot Noir, which has done very well. A blend of different clones and blocks, this bottling is fermented in open-top tanks and plunged by hand. Eleven months in French oak (30 percent new) gave the wine its depth and polish.
Sense
Red-fruit aromas of strawberry and raspberry are complemented by hints of mint and underbrush.
Savor
Light smoke adds a touch of complexity to a wine that blends ripe, juicy redfruit flavors with deeper savory elements like black olives and a hint of white pepper.
Serve
The soft but present tannins in the Mt. Beautiful Pinot Noir make it a fine partner for oily fish like salmon and tuna as well as light to medium-bodied meats including poultry (especially duck), veal and pork. For accent ingredients, the earthy tones in mushrooms and truffles are a classic match with Pinot, while the hint of mint in the wine’s finish invites fresh herbs like thyme or aromatic spices like cinnamon or clove. For great pairings, try recipes like Quail with Grapes and Sausage or Wild Mushroom Risotto with Peas, available at williams- sonoma.com.
Serving Instructions
Serve a little cooler than room temperature: refrigerate the bottle for 15 minutes before serving.
