Black Cottage ‘Reserve’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 29-Jun-2017
Very dark, black-red colour with purple hues, lighter on the rim. This has a firmly concentrated, deep and intense nose with aromas of black cherry fruit entwined with dark herbs and black minerals, unfolding violet floral elements with aeration. Medium-full bodied, the palate is fresh and vibrant with flavours of dark-red and black cherries, along with lifted dark florals and herb notes, unfolding minerally hints. The palate has an elegant, fine-textured core with a firm heart, and the mouthfeel has balanced, integrated acid drive. The flavours of black fruits, herbs, florals and minerals carry to a lingering, finely concentrated finish. This is an elegant, finely concentrated, firm, black cherry fruited Pinot Noir with a good core and integrated acid drive. Match with poultry, pork, lamb and beef over the next 4+ years. Clones 777, 115, Abel and 667 from Alexandra, fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 10% new French oak barrels and tank. 17.5+/20 Jun 2017 RRP $25.00
