The High Note, as its name suggest, represents the focal point of Misha’s Pinot Noir catalogue.
Layered with elegance and complexity, The High Note is a superlative example of Central Otago Pinot Noir. Drink now, or cellar.
Pungently aromatic pinot noir with floral, rose petal and violet aromas occupying centre-stage with a mix of spice, cherry, berry and nutty oak playing a supporting role. A silken-textured wine with a lingering finish. Impressive and accessible with potential. Drink to 2028.

Wonderfully composed and expressed, the splendidly fragrant bouquet shows dark cherry, raspberry, toasted almond, dark spice and floral aromas, followed by a concentrated palate that’s refined and graceful. It’s elegant yet mouthfilling and generous within a beautifully proportioned frame, finishing impressively long and expansive.

An enticing bouquet with aromas of ripe red berry fruits and dried herb layered between scents of oak and toasty wood spices, a dark rose and earthy quality. On the palate - equally enticing with a core of pinosity centering on red berry and plum, dark florals and savoury undertones. Layers of oak and baking spices adding depth and complexity. Firm youthful tannins with a chalk-like texture, plenty of acidity and overall solid structure. Lengthy, detailed and dry finish. Decant for service - slightly cooler than you might ordinarily prepare a Pinot Noir - and enjoy from today and through 2026.

Central Otago, located at the southern end of the South Island of New Zealand, is the world’s most southerly wine region. In a short amount of time, the area has established itself as a world-class region for Pinot Noir. The picturesque region is surrounded by mountains ensuring a cool semi-continental climate that experiences a large diurnal range contributing to the creation of intensely concentrated wines with perfume, and complexity. Central Otago’s vineyard area is divided into six distinct sub regions each with their own climate and wine style. Best known for producing intensely Fruity medium to full bodied Pinot Noir, Central Otago’s cool climate also produces outstanding Riesling as well as superb bottle-fermented Sparkling wines.
