Mission Briefing


Burgundy... New Zealand?!

Today’s Terra Sancta Wines 2012 Mysterious Diggings Central Otago Pinot Noir is a delicious wine with a unique name.

A deeply flavorful Pinot, this wine has clear comparisons to many of the best Pinots from Burgundy. With equal placement given to fruit, earth, and spice, today’s wine would be right at home in the south of France.

James Suckling loved this wine, and we did as well. Go ahead and pour a little mystery in your glass - you won’t regret it!

Tasting Profile


Deep, dark red, like a perfectly baked beet salad.


Clear notes of perfectly ripened dark fruit, particularly juicy blackberry and black cherry. These fruity aromas are trailed by mushroomy earth, tobacco leaf, clove, black peppercorn, and mocha.


Very Burgundian, with equal placement given to fruit, earth, and spice. Juicy, fresh dark berry and cherry mingle with fresh berry bramble, cedar wood, summer earth, dark baking spices, and freshly ground black peppercorn.


Silken on entry, with fine tannins and structure along the edges of the palate providing a very clean mouthfeel.


A rustic homemade pizza of melted tomatoes, Soppressata, and black olives.
