Black Cottage Pinot Noir 2019, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 29-Jul-2020
Deep, ruby-red with a black hue, very slightly lighter on the rim. The nose is full with aromas of red and black cherry-plums, wild thyme, entwined with cocoa and spices. Full-bodied, dry, flavours of red cherries, black plums interweaved with cocoa, thyme and an amalgam of spices. Acid is lively and balanced with the concentrated fruit and lightened the fine-grained tannin extraction, which is velvety with a good grip; all three elements provided a firm structure with intensity. This is a bold Pinot Noir with good intensity of fruit flavours on a cocoa, slightly firm tannin grip. Match with game meat and grill over the next 2-3 years. Fermented to 13.5% alc, 10% whole-bunches. Aged in French oak for 4 months. 17.5/20 pts Aug 2020 RRP $25
