Folding Hill Bendigo Pinot Noir 2014

21-Feb-2017
The ‘Folding Hill’ label of Tim Kerruish and his partners is becoming recognised as a source of top flight Central Otago Pinot Noir. The 4 ha Folding Hill vineyard in the Bendigo sub-region was established in 2003, and is tended by James Dicey and his viticultural team. Fred Reinds is the winemaker, and with Tim, has developed the style of the wines to fully represent the structurally strong and ageworthy expression that the district tends to deliver. While the style is well-liked and well-rated by many consumers and critics (including myself), I personally would like to see a little more elegance. I believe that Tim and his team are indeed working towards that goal. I had the pleasure of tasting the 2015 Folding Hill at the Pinot Noir 2017 conference at the start of the month, and see that wine as possessing that finesse and elegance (click here to see my report of the Central Otago wines I tasted). Here, I review the new release 2014 Pinot Noir, with what I see as more refined extraction than previous vintages. www.foldinghill.co.nz
