Aitken’s Folly ‘Riverbank Road’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 03-Feb-2015
Light, even ruby-red colour, lighter edged. The bouquet is light and straightforward with aromas of red cherry fruit and red florals in the cooler spectrum, showing some herbal notes. Light-medium bodied, tightly bound flavours of red cherry fruit and florals grow to show a concentrated core with good drive and energy. The extraction is modest, but contributes a firmness to the flow, with elevated acidity adding to the firmness and tension. The palate carries through to a concentrated and lingering finish with cherry and raspberry notes. This light-weighted, fresh and lively Pinot Noir has concentration and firmly driven flavours of cherries and raspberries. Serve with antipasto, charcuterie and poultry over the next 4 years. Clones Abel, 667 and 5, the fruit fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 30% new French oak. 16.5+/20 Mar 2014 RRP $35.00
