Carrick Organic Pinot Noir 2018, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 14-Apr-2021
Moderate, deep ruby-red, lighter on edge. The nose is full, robust underlying alcohol power. Aromas of black cherries, blackberries interweave wild thyme, perfume and barrel spices. Medium-full bodied, generous aromas of dark cherries, blackberries melded with dark herbs, spices, unfolding earth and savoury elements. The mouthfeel is rich with the intensity of fruit and ripe fine-grained tannin, lends a lengthy, supple finish. Savoury earth and dark herbs added complexity. This is a powerful, dark-toned Pinot Noir with generous fruit and complexity. Match with lamb roast and beef pies over the next 5+ years. Fruit from a blend of 4 different parcels, Pinot Noir planted on their own roots. Destemmed, wild yeast fermented to 14.5% alc, aged 9 months in barrels, 20% new. BioGro organic certified. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Apr 2021 RRP $45
