Bannock Brae ‘Goldfields’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 22-Sep-2014
Moderately dark, even ruby-red colour, lighter on rim. The nose is restrained with a tightly bound core of dark red cherry and berry fruit entwined with herb and minerally notes, in an amalgam with lifted floral fragrances and spicy oak cedar. The aromatics are harmonious, building in volume with aeration. Medium-full bodied, soft and restrained flavours of red fruits and aromatic florals unfold spices, earth and cedary oak. The palate is supported by a fine-grained tannin line with good drive and energy. The mouthfeel is lively and fresh with soft acidity providing energy, carrying the wine to a fine-textured, dry finish with some grip and firm length. This is a soft, lively red-fruited Pinot Noir with some oak spice and a dry, textured finish. Serve with poultry and pork over the next 4-5 years. Fruit fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine spending approx. 1 month on skins and aged 10 months in 15% new French oak. 17.5/20 Sep 2014 RRP $34.00
