Bald Hills ‘Single Vineyard’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 19-Mar-2012
Deep ruby-red colour with purple hues at the heart, and with a lighter rim, this has a softly full, voluminous nose, the fruit a little restrained and shy initially. This has ripe dark cherry fruit aromas with floral perfumes. Complex waves of savoury dark berries and dark herbs unfold, with well-balanced, supporting oak. Medium-full bodied, the flavours are restrained and expressed with elegance. Dark berries and cherries, intermingling with thyme herb and floral lift, the palate is very fine-featured with velvety tannins and excellent acidity and energy. This has finesse and very good length. This is a classically proportioned and stylish Pinot Noir with fine textures, still to blossom and show its potential. A barrel selection with 64% clone 115 and 36% 10/5, fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 50% new French oak. Serve with roasted lamb pork and veal or harder cheeses over the next 6-9 years. 18.5+/20 Mar 2012 RRP $45.00
