This deeply flavored, earthy recipe was inspired by a dish Annabel Langbein tasted at the Amisfield Bistro, just outside historic Arrowtown in New Zealand's Central Otago region.

The dark succulence of duck matches well with Pinot Noir's earthy berry fruit character. Pinot Noir is gaining prominence in New Zealand, especially in the Central Otago region where Annabel Langbein spends much of her time.
