Coney Wines ‘Pizzicato’ Pinot Noir 2018

Martinborough | $39

The wine is savoury (10/5 clone) and delicious with a lighter texture than the 2016 – a delicate little number reminding you that unlike cabernet, which is bigger, Pinot Noir is complex and gentle simultaneously. As someone said, “ it expresses the vineyard perfectly.” The greatest compliment is “Its typical – very Pinot.” Try it with pork, mushrooms and densely textured fish like salmon, tuna, groper etc. Cellared properly Pizzicato ‘17 will travel gracefully to 2022. Not understanding Pinot any better than economics President Trump was caught recently sprinkling burgundy on a raspberry cupcake. This is not recommended.

“When people ask us, as they frequently do, why two city dwellers should suddenly buy a 16 acre bare paddock in Dry River Road, Martinborough, dismiss the sheep and plant 10,000 vines by spade, the answer is palpable – we’d simply lost our marbles.

What had been envisaged as a gentle descent into middle age retirement has turned into a thriving 24/7 bustle of vinetending, winemaking, marketing and restaurateuring – each operation undertaken in the hallowed, self-flagellating Martinborough tradition – by manual labour. Be it leaf-plucking or bunch thinning by hand in the vineyard to ensure umblemished, perfectly ripe fruit, or the sheer tastiness of Margaret’s cuisine which derives from the traditional “homemade” quality of every ingredient served to appreciative diners – the Coney aim is to pay keen attention to detail.”
