Carrick Unravelled Organic Pinot Noir 2019, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 14-Apr-2021
Moderate, deep ruby-red with a black hue, slightly lighter edged. The nose is fragrant and softly lifting aromas of wild herb, black cherries, blackberries, melded with delicate spices. Medium-light bodied, strawberries' nuances come through, along with blackberries and cherries, cinnamon bark and cloves unfolds with black peppercorns and an amalgam of dark herbs. Lacy acidity flows smoothly, lingering with fine-grained tannin carries tea fragrances to a moderate finish. This is a youthful Pinot Noir with fragrant fruit, spices and a fine-grained tannin structure. Match with pasta ragu and lamb Koftas over the next 3 years. Handpicked fruit, wild fermented in tank to 13.5% alc, aged in French oak barriques for 8 months, 7% new oak. BioGro organic certified. 18-/20 pts (89 pts) Apr 2021 RRP $27.50
