Lure ‘The Hudson Joe’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2014

09 November,2017

‘Lure’ is the wine brand of Linda and Gary Young who are resident in Brisbane, Australia. When they retired from the corporate world, they set up a small wine distribution business, Young’s Wines of the World, selling the Carrick Central Otago wines of Steve Green, Linda’s uncle. Having worked the vintage at Carrick for over a decade, they decided to have made, their own high-quality. limited production Central Otago Pinot Noir for distribution. The name ‘Lure’ comes from the Young’s time living in a village in Italy, where the locals knew two things Kiwi: the All Blacks, and fly-fishing. Inspired by the latter, the wine brand is ‘Lure’, and the sub-title ‘The Hudson Joe’ is for their grandson. The label was designed by James Lee Duffy with Michael Scheele the artist, a specialist in painting fishing flys. The fruit for the wine comes from the family ‘Carrick’ vineyard, and vinified by Carrick winemaker Francis Hutt, with input from Gary Young. Here, I review the 2014 Lure Pinot Noir. www.youngswinesoftheworld.com
