Black Cottage Pinot Noir 2019, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 23-Apr-2022
Deep ruby-black, lighter on the rim. The nose is sweetly-full, with subtle power, aromas of black cherries and strawberries, dark herb and smoky spice. Medium-full bodied, black cherries and strawberries enriched by thyme, clove and cinnamon, followed by cocoa and a smoky linger. The fruit is succulent with good weight; lively acidity supports a smooth flow with rich and comforting spices along a fine-grained line. This Pinot Noir has bold, juicy black fruit, spice details and a grainy textured grip. Match with barbeque lamb and shepherd's pie over the next 2-3 years. Fruit sourced from Alexandra sub-region, fermented to 13% alc, aged in French oak barrels, 20% new oak. Vegan friendly. 17.5+/20 pts (89 pts) Apr 2022 RRP $26
