Bannock Brae ‘Barrel Selection’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2008

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 30-May-2017
Even garnet-red colour, lighter on the rim. This has a light and elegant bouquet with coolish red berry fruits laced with subtle herbal notes, along with some savoury game elements. This is still fresh and fragrant with floral notes unfolding from the integrated core. Medium full bodied, the alcohol power shows under the flavours. This has beautifully integrated flavours of dark-red berry fruit, hints of plums and herbs, and savoury earth secondary complexity. The palate has good grip and acidity, and provides good line. This is fully mature, and showing some cooler nuances with the development. Drink over the next 2-3 years. Clones 5, 6 and 115, fermented to 14.3% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 32% new French oak. Winemaker: Matt Connell. 18.5-/20 May 2017 RRP $N/A
