Carrick ‘Unravelled’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 27-Mar-2012
Dark, deep, ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, lighter on rim. The nose is fresh, deep and full with layers of aromas of black cherries with savoury dried herb notes, the bouquet showing some cooler spectrum elements and a faint touch of reduction. Medium-bodied, this has a rich core of savoury dark cherry and berry fruits along with earthy, herb elements. There is fruit sweetness and soft acidity, with supple tannins that provide dry textures to the mouthfeel. The wine finishes softly with subtle savoury berry fruit nuances. A soft Pinot Noir with dried herb and black cherry flavours, finishing dry. Match with Asian duck and pork dishes over the next 3-5 years. Clones 777, 667, 115, 113, 114, 5 and 10/5 from the ‘Carrick' vineyards in Bannockburn given a cold soak, fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.9% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 29% new French oak barrels. 17.0+20 Mar 2012 RRP $28.00
