Bald Hills ‘3 Acres’ Bannockburn Central Otago Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 19-Mar-2012
All 10/5 clone from the ‘Bald Hills' vineyard, fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 22% new French oak barrels. Very deep, full, dark ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues. The bouquet is firm, intense and well-concentrated, showing very ripe, dark cherry and berry aromas along with dark plum, dark herbs, hints of liquorice, anise and oak char. Full-bodied and packed with layers of flavour, fruit in the fully-ripened spectrum intermingle with thyme herb, minerals and earth. Some violet florals emerge. The palate is smooth in texture with soft acidity, and the wine finishes with a very long, sustained finish of florals and spices. This is a bold, flavour-packed and velvety Pinot Noir to match with Middle Eastern duck and lamb dishes over the next 4-5+ years. 18.0-/20 Mar 2012 RRP $32.00
