The Oddbins Take

Is there a better home for wine than on a terrace? You could be overlooking a beach in Auckland or taking in the London skyline on a rooftop bar in Shoreditch, either way you know that you're enjoying the best possible drinking experience because you're on an elevated, open platform. As you luxuriate in the best views, bathe in the great exposure to sunlight and relish in the feeling of being a Roman Emperor, looking down on the peasants below you who aren't on a terrace, you realise the wine has never tasted better.


It makes sense as grapes love being on terraces too; the plentiful amount of sunlight that can fully ripen the grapes, the exposure to breezes that help to prevent rot and retain aromatics and acidity, it's where the Caesars of grapes would heil from. Like Rapaura Springs Limestone Terrace Pinot Noir, stood proud on its platform it orates notes of dark cherry & plum with undertones of thyme, mocha and cinnamon spice, with fine tannins and an elegant, lengthy finish.
