Black Ridge Central Otago Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 02-Feb-2018
Moderately deep garnet-hued red colour, a little lighter on the rim. The nose is elegant in proportion with secondary fruit aromas of savoury red berry fruit entwined with dried thyme herbs, along with a complexing layer of undergrowth and nutty oak elements. The aromatics form a well-concentrated core. Medium-full bodied, the palate has lively fruit flavours of savoury red cherry and berry fruits melded with dried herbs, some undergrowth elements with earthy and nutty notes. The palate has good depth and presence, and the fruit is underlined by fine-grained tannin textures lending a subtle core and line. This has good acidity and energy, and the wine carries to an elegant finish. This is an elegant Pinot Noir with savoury secondary red fruits, herbs and undergrowth notes on a fine-textured palate with good liveliness. Match with wild duck and pork dishes over the next 4 years. Hand-picked fruit fully destemmed and fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged one year in 2-4 y.o. French oak. 17.5-/20 Feb 2018 RRP $38.00
