27 Seconds Encore Pinot Noir 2020, North Canterbury

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 24-Aug-2022
Deep, ruby-red with a slightly lighter rim. The nose is full and broody, penetrating dark cherry and blackberry aromas melded with dark roses, earth and spice. Medium-bodied, dark cherry and blackberry aromas form a rich core with dark rose, liquorice, earth, and cinnamon. The wine shows concentration and depth with savoury lingers. Fine-grained tannin extraction left a velvety grip; lively acidity provides a smooth drive. This broody Pinot Noir is well-balanced with depth and possesses dark fruit, savoury, earthy aromas on a silky mouthfeel. 13% alc. Match with lamb koftas and shredded duck over the next 5 years. 18.5-/20 pts (92 pts) Aug 2022 RRP $24.99
