Black Cottage ‘Reserve’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2018

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 21-Sep-2018
Moderately deep ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, paler on the rim. The nose is fresh and intense with uncomplicated aromas of cherry and raspberry fruit with some whole berry fermentation confectionary-like notes and fragrant red florals. This has aromatic clarity. Medium-full bodied, the palate has sweet and lively, aromatic fruit flavours of cherries and raspberries, with floral and confectionary lift, along with jammy elements, unfolding nuances of liquorice and spice. The fruit forms an elegant core which is supported by light, supple tannins and a line of fresh acidity. The flavours carry to a lingering finish. This is an uncomplicated, youthfully vibrant Pinot Noir with cherry, raspberry and confectionary-like whole berry ferment flavours on an elegant, supple palate. Match with antipasto, tapas and Asian cuisine over the next 3 years. Clones 777, 115, Abel and 667, hand-picked fruit from Alexandra and Cromwell, fermented with 20% whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 4 months in French oak. 17.0+/20 Sep 2018 RRP $25.00
