Tiki ‘Koro’ Wanaka Pinot Noir 2012

03-Jan-2014
The ‘Koro’ Pinot Noir for Royce and Sue McKean’s Tiki range is the flagship label, and its black coloured label makes it stand out in a line-up of the wines. ‘Koro’ means ‘grandfather’ in Maori, and refers to Royce McKean’s great-great grandfather Tiki Tere Mihi, chieftain of the Ngati Uenuku tribe. I recently reviewed the 2012 ‘Koro’ Pinot Noir, a blend of 60% Gibbston and 40% Bendigo fruit, and made by Dean Shaw (click here to see my review). I have just received another bottling of 2012 ‘Koro’ Pinot Noir, this from Wanaka-sourced fruit, made by Dan Dineen of the Maude winery. Clearly the wines are different, and they are labelled properly for identifying them. Here, I review the new Wanaka wine. www.tikiwine.com
