Black Estate Netherwood Pinot Noir 2019, North Canterbury

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 30-Apr-2021
Deep, ruby-red with a black hue, even colour throughout. The nose is soft and lifting, elegantly presented, youthful nuances of red berries, raspberries, plums have good tension; interweave well-proportioned floral, herbs and a hint of mineral. Medium-bodied, aromas of red plums, raspberries and red berries leading the palate with tension, delicate floral and herbs subtly adorn, black pepper, cinnamon linger to a long and fragranced closing. The mouthfeel is silky with finely extracted tannin interweaves lacy threads of acidity persist with floral essence, showing finesse and delicate interest. This fragranced, refined Pinot Noir reflect a sense of place and hands-off winemaking. Match with smoked duck and pigeon over the next 8+ years. Fermented with vineyard derived yeast to 12% alc, 100% whole cluster, 28 days skin contact. Unfined and unfiltered, minimal sulphur added at bottling. BioGro organic certified, vegan friendly. 19.5-/20 pts (97 pts) Apr 2021 RRP $75
