Balancing Act REW Central Otago Pinot Noir 2011

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 15-Apr-2013
Deep ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, lighter on edge. This has an elegant bouquet with dark raspberry and cherry fruit aromas that reveal notes of earth, dried herbs and red liquorice in the glass. Medium-full bodied, the flavours of raspberries and red liquorice are a little restrained in expression. The palate has good weight with some alcohol power, and softly firm, grainy tannins lend a dry, driven mouthfeel. There is sufficient acidity for energy, and the flavours lead to a moderately textured finish with bitter cherry notes. This is a soft, textured Pinot Noir with body and drive with subtle, bitter cherry and raspberry fruit flavours. Match with pasta, pork and most red meat dishes. Fruit from the Alexandra Basin fermented to 13.5% alc. Approx. 75 mg of Resveratrol. 16.0/20 Apr 2013 RRP $24.99
