Bendigo Hills Pinot Noir 2018, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 04-Aug-2021
Moderate ruby-red with moderate transparency, lighter edged. The bouquet is full, underlying power, aromas of rich, succulent black cherries, melded with blackberries, dark herbs, baking spices. Full-bodied, nuances of black cherries, baked blackberries intermix rich herbs and liquorice. The palate filled with tannin extraction coated the palate with silk yet firm grip; cooked fruit and herbs left a broad mouthfeel. This is a rich Pinot Noir with baked black fruit and spices on a robust and powerful palate. Match with lamb roast and grilled steak over the next 3 years. Clones: Abel, 115, 777, 5 and 667. Destemmed, cold soak for 7 days, spontaneous fermentation to 13.5% alc, lasted for 3 weeks approx, aged in French oak (20% new) for 14 months. BioGro organic certified. 18+/20 pts (91 pts) Aug 2021 RRP $35.99
