Roaring Meg is a stream that runs into the Kawarau River and feeds the hydro electric plant just outside Cromwell. Named after an 1860s barmaid with a fiery temper, I'm told she was the local prostitute of the day as well. There you go. This Pinot doesn't have a temper nor does it sell itself off.
Some notes from a quick fire tasting at the cellar door with Sales Manager Greg Wilkinson.
Spicy, fruit forward, dark fruits and raspberries, red apple acidity. Easy to see why this is so popular. A Pinot for great times that oozes good value.
