TattyBogler Otago Pinot Noir 2013

10-Feb-2015
The ‘TattyBogler’ wines are the Otago expressions of John Forrest. The name refers to the traditional Scottish scarecrow and pays homage to the Scottish settlers in the region. John Forrest has two vineyards in Otago, one in Bannockburn and the other in the Waitaki Valley. The bottlings to date have featured wines which are single vineyard expressions as well as blends of the two sites. The ‘Bannock Burn Creek’ vineyard overlooking the Bannockburn Inlet in Central Otago was planted in 2003 and features north-facing terraces and soils made up of glacial deposits mixed with miners’ tailings. The site is well-protected from frosts and the southerly winds and has proven to be a fine source of Pinot Noir, the wines being well-awarded since the first vintage in 2006. Here I review the new release TattyBogler Otago Pinot Noir 2013, a single vineyard wine from the ‘Bannock Burn Creek’ vineyard. www.forrest.co.nz
