Brennan ‘B2’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 11-Jul-2018
Dark, deep, ruby-red colour with light purple hues, a little paler on the rim. The nose is firmly concentrated with a deep and well-packed core of black cherry fruit with dark raspberry notes, entwined with dark herbs and some whole bunch stalk elements. The nose has a soft density and solidness to the presentation. Medium-full bodied, the palate has rich and juicy flavours of dark-red and black cherries interwoven with fresh and dark herbs, and subtle whole bunch suggestions. The flavours form a concentrated, but rounded core that offers accessibility. The fruit is underlined by light, grainy tannin structure with fresh acidity lending tension and energy. The wine carries to a soft, full, moderately long finish. This is a rounded, rich Pinot Noir with accessible flavours of dark-red and black cherries with herb notes and fresh acidity. Match with poultry, pork, beef and lamb over the next 4+ years. Gibbston estate fruit, clones 10/5, 5, 115, 667, 777 and Abel, fermented partially by indigenous yeasts with 20% whole clusters to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10.5 months in 27% new oak. 17.5/20 Jul 2018 RRP $35.00
