Black Cottage Pinot Noir 2020, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 03-Mar-2021
Clear, deep ruby-red with good transparency, lighter on the rim. The nose is full, nuances of black cherries, kirsch, deep floral intermix thyme and spices. Medium-full bodied, bright nuances of black cherries, strawberries and raspberries, entwined with thyme and barrel spices. The fruit front is vibrant and juicy, supported by lively acidity; fine-grained tannin provides a light grainy grip. This is a juicy, fruit-forward Pinot Noir with lively acidity and a slightly grainy textured grip. Match with beef red curry and pork over the next 2-3 years. Fruit from Alexandra and Gibbson, clones 667 and Abel, 10% whole bunch, 12.5% alc, matured with French oak for 8 months. Vegan friendly. 17.5-/20 pts (87 pts) Mar 2021 RRP $25.99
