Ceres ‘The Artists Collection’ ‘Black Rabbit Vineyard’ Bannockburn Central Otago Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 22-Aug-2018
Even ruby-red colour, lighter edged with slight purple hues. This has a beautifully fragrant nose with ethereal aromas of red berry fruits layered with an array of red florals, along with piquant herbal detail. This has aromatic finesse and intensity, and builds to form a taut core. Medium-full bodied, the palate has bright and vibrant, beautifully aromatic flavours of red berry fruit entwined with a layering of red florals, along with subtle notes of herbs. The mouthfeel is refreshing and crisp with a refined, but sinewy core and line, with fine-grained, flowery tannin extraction in support. The palate has fresh acidity in support enlivening the fruit expression, and the wine carries with good energy and tension to an elegant, lingering finish. This is a beautifully fragrant Pinot Noir with red berry fruits and an array of florals, with very fine grained extraction and structure and a fresh mouthfeel. This is an expression of beauty. Match with poultry and pork over the next 6-7+ years. Clone 5 and 115 fruit fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 14.1% alc., the wine spending 26 days on skins and aged 14 months in 4 y.o. barrels. 80 dozen made. 19.0/20 Aug 2018 RRP $78.00
