McArthur Ridge Brass Knocker Pinot Noir 2021, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 20-Nov-2021
Moderately deep, ruby-red colour, lighter on edge. The nose is gentle and harmonious; nuances of dark herb and savoury earth interweave black pepper and black cherries, blackberries and a hint of vanilla and barrel toastiness. Medium-light bodied, cherries and red berries melded with black pepper, subtle earthy and barrel spices linger on the finish. The fruit is vibrant with juicy acidity; fine-textured, powdery tannin leaves a smooth mouthfeel. This is a fruit-forward, juicy Pinot Noir with balanced barrel complexity. Match with venison sausages and summer barbeque over the next 2-3 years. 13.5% alc. 17.5/20 pts (88 pts) Dec 2021 RRP $21.99
