Tiki ‘Koro’ Wanaka Pinot Noir 2012

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
