Dry, light bodied and oaked; a Pinot with earthiness and depth to wallow in. The pristine cool-climate along with long sun drenched days allowed the fruit to ripen magnificently and produce aromas of deep red cherry, blackberry and cocoa. In the mouth the Squealing Pig is rich and generous with velvet like tannins and a wonderful, long finish. A deliciously drinkable Pinot for the Summer!
Squealing Pig is a range of wines that originated in New Zealand and has spread first to Australia and then to Europe. The whole range is produced under the supervision of top New Zealand winemaker Spring Timlin, who for many years was the chief winemaker at Matua. We recently stocked the Primitivo version, albeit at a slightly cheaper price and it sold out (twice) rather quickly! The Malbec is also very nice, they know what they are doing at this winemaking establishment!
