Box O’ Birds Central Otago Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 10-Nov-2015
Dark, deep, purple-hued ruby-red colour, lighter on the rim and youthful in appearance. The nose is tightly bound and finely proportioned with aromas of dark red berry and black cherry fruit entwined with soft earthy and minerally reductive notes, unfolding nuances of pepper and violet florals. Medium-full bodied, the palate features tightly concentrated fruit flavours of dark red berry and cherry fruit with red liquorice and plum notes. The fruit is restrained in expression, but reveals violet florals and mineral elements in the glass. The wine follows a fine, grainy tannin line and the mouthfeel is fresh, enlivened by bright acidity. This carries to a light, firm, lingering finish. This is an elegant, taut, black and red fruited Pinot Noir with a light, firm finish. Match with poultry, pork and beef dishes over the next 3-4 years. A single vineyard wine from the Bendigo sub-region, the fruit indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in tank, 7 months with oak contact. 16.5+/20 Nov 2015 RRP $20.00
