7th Heaven Pinot Noir 2017, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 01-Mar-2022
Deep, ruby-red with depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is fragrant with aromas of sweet cherries, plums, interweaved vanilla and warm spice. Medium-full bodied, concentrated aromas of dark cherries and plums form a rich core, unveiling dark herbs, cinnamon and liquorice. Tight-knitted tannins lend a smooth palate, reflect the concentrated fruit and shape a rich core. Vibrant acidity provides freshness and length to a long, dry finish. This is a rich Pinot Noir with dense dark fruit and herb, and a tight-knitted tannin structure. Match with lamb or meat stew over the next 5 years. Handpicked clones 777, Abel, 115, fermented with 30% whole bunch, aged for 10 months approx in French oak barrels, 15% new oak. 12% alc. Vegan friendly. 17/20 pts (85 pts) Feb 2022 RRP $36
