Black Quail Pinot Noir 2020, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 24-Apr-2023
Moderately deep ruby-red, lighter on edge. This has a concentrated, savoury bouquet packed with aromas of cherry, plum, dark herb, earthy forest, mushroom and spice. Medium-full bodied, intense black cherry and plum aromas melded with thyme, mushroom and forest floor, earthy minerals and cinnamon. The wine is generous with flavour and weight, persists with spice and fresh acidity to a long, savoury finish. Match with roasted lamb and duck over the next 8+ years. Handpicked, fermented with 30% whole bunches to 13.9% alc, 24 days total time on skins, aged 11 months in French oak, 20% new oak. Unfined, unfiltered. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Apr 2023 RRP $55
