Bannock Brae ‘Barrel Selection’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2006

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 30-May-2017
Even garnet red with some depth, a little bricking on edge. The bouquet is a little shy, but reveals fruit with depth and density in a solid expression. Certainly in the secondary and beginning to enter the tertiary spectrum with savoury game, dried herbs and earthy detail. On palate quite full-bodied and weighty, the fruit is beginning to dry a little, with flavours of savoury red and brown fruits, dried herbs, earth and game. This still has sweetness, but the tannins and extraction are beginning to prevail, though the crisp acidity shows, lending life and enhances the fruitiness. The finish is tending firm and dry. Drink up. Clones 5, 6 and 115, fermented to 14.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 35% new French oak barrels. Winemaker: Matt Connell. 17.5/20 May 2017 RP $N/A
