Clos Ostler Caroline’s Pinot Noir 2021, Waitaki Valley North Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 09-Apr-2024
Deep crimson with a hint of purple, lighter on the rim. The bouquet is captivating, with sweet and delicate aromas of cherry, raspberry, floral, herb and savoury attributes. Medium-bodied, aromas of Morello cherry and raspberry entwined with cherry blossom, cinnamon, thyme, hibiscus tea and black pepper. A chalky mineral texture coats the palate along with silky tannins braided with lacy acidity, carrying a refined, extended, mesmerising finish. Match with duck breast and suckling pig over the next 10 years. Clones 115, 667, 777, UCD6 and Abel, handpicked, fermented to 13.5% alc, aged 15 months in Burgundy barrels, 20% new oak. 19/20 pts (95 pts) Apr 2024 RRP $120
