Bannock Brae ‘Barrel Selection’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 30-May-2017
Dark, deep ruby-red with black hues and some garnet on the edge. The nose is full, solid and deep with great volume, packed with ripe black berried fruits and subtle secondary dried herb, earth and minerally development. The fulsome nature and complexity is sensational. Full-bodied, the palate is weighty and solid, with depth and density of flavour. The fruit is still sweet and succulent, showing black berried fruits melded with earth, dried herbs, minerals and the beginnings of game. The palate possesses power and drive, with firm, fine-grained flowery tannins and integrated acidity. The oaking is apparent, but is integral with the flavours on the very long finish. This is a wine of size and structure., and should keep another decade. Fruit fermented with approx. 6% whole clusters to 14.3% alc., the wine aged 11 months in French oak. Winemaker: Jen Parr. 19.0+/20 May 2017 RRP $N/A
