7th Heaven Pinot Noir 2018, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 01-Mar-2022
Moderate ruby-red with depth, lighter on the rim. This has a sweet dark cherry fruit bouquet melded with dark herbs, underlying spice power and a hint of game. Medium-full bodied, aromas of cherries, strawberries intermixed black pepper barrel spice, dark herbs linger on the finish. The wine has an array of flavours, with grainy tannin and vibrant acidity. This Pinot Noir possesses red cherries and strawberries with lively acidity and a grainy mouthfeel. Match with pork or roasted duck over the next 3+ years.
