Keen for a good feed and a glass of something nice (Pinot no doubt) at Queenstown’s Skyline restaurant Melbourne businessman John Valmorbida ignored the gondola signs and decided to take the scenic route up the hill.
What he thought would be a gentle, relaxing stroll turned into a cross country adventure across rugged terrain, encountering the odd Nanny Goat we’d say judging by the fact he went on to open up his own vineyard and named it so!
This is Central Otago Pinot through ‘n’ through. Soft, supple, with savoury red berry fruits and a silky finish.
No goats were harmed in the making of this Pinot but one could face the chop if you follow our ideal food match – braised goat shoulder, creamy polenta and sautéed wild mushrooms.
