Black Cottage Pinot Noir 2019, Marlborough

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Marlborough
Review Date : 25-May-2020
Clear, medium ruby-red with some depth, paler on the edge with a slight purple hue. The nose is expressive with earthy, meaty notes, unfolding nuances of dark-red cherry fruit, mocha, herbal elements, baking spices and some nutty oak. Medium-full bodied, the palate is rich with flavours of dark-red cherry, mocha, herbal notes along with an amalgam of baking spices and nut. The dark-chocolate tannin is supported by lively acidity; flavours are rich and generous; flows to a consistent finish. This wine is a generous, full-flavoured Pinot Noir with dark cherry fruit, mocha, herbal elements, along with baking spices and nutty notes on a medium-full palate, melded with earthy and meaty nuances. Enjoy with stewed gamey fare over the next 3-5 years. Fruit from Southern Valleys, windblown loess over clay fermented to 13% alc, aged for 10 months in French oak barrels and cuves. 17/20pts May 2020 RRP$20
