Stockman’s Station Central Otago Pinot Noir 2016

07 June,2017
Stockman’s Station is a secondary brand of Wild Earth Wines designed to be marketed and sold in FMCG channels. The main outlet for the wine is through Countdown.  The wine allows both the producer and stockist to expand the range of wines being worked with.  The Stockman’s Station offers consumers a genuine taste of quality Central Otago Pinot Noir at an affordable price.  So it is ‘win-win’ (or is that ‘win-wine’) for everyone!  Here is my review of the 2016 Stockman’s Station Pinot Noir.  www.wildearthwines.co.nz

Stockman’s Station Central Otago Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand – Otago

17.5-/20
Dark, deep, black-hued purple-red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is firm and intense with well-concentrated aromas of black cherries and dark-red berry fruit along with subtle notes of thyme herbs and liquorice, unveiling hints of nutty oak and minerals. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a tightly bound and firm core of dark berry and plum fruit with black cherries, and subtle notes of liquorice and herbs, unfolding some nutty oak elements. The fruit sweetness is balanced by fine, firm tannin extraction, and the palate flows along a concentrated line with integrated acidity, The wine carries to a long, dry, black berry fruited finish. This is a firm and tightly concentrated black cherry and berry fruited Pinot Noir with fine-grained tannin extract and a concentrated core. Match with pork, lamb, beef and venison dishes over the next 4-5 years. Fruit from two sites in the Cromwell Basin, hand-picked, almost full destemmed and fermented to 13.9% alc., the wine spending 3-4 weeks on skins total, and aged 9 months in seasoned oak. 17.5-/20 Jun 2017 RRP $24.95
