Black Cottage ‘Reserve’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 10-Aug-2016
Even, light ruby-red colour, paler on the rim. The nose is light and tightly bound with fresh and clear aromas of red cherry fruit and dark red florals entwined with subtle thyme herb notes and suggestions of minerals. Medium-bodied, the palate is elegant in proportion, and the flavours of red cherries and thyme herbs light and shy in expression. Lacy acidity enlivens the mouthfeel and adds to the aromatic lift of the fruit, and light, youthfully grainy tannins provide balancing dry textures and grip. The flavours recede as the wine flows to a moderately long, fine-textured, cherryish finish. This is a light, cherry-fruited Pinot Noir with freshness and light, sinewy structure. Match with firm-fleshed seafood, poultry and pasta dishes over the next 3 years. Clones 777, 115, Abel and 667 from Alexandra vineyards, fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine matured 10 months in tank and seasoned French oak. 16.5/20 Aug 2016 RRP $25.00
