Clos Ostler Caroline’s Waitaki Valley Pinot Noir 2020, North Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 26-Sep-2023
Deep ruby-red, even colour throughout. This has a delicate bouquet with aromas of bright floral, intermixed cranberry, cherry, tamarillo and savoury, earthy elements. Medium-bodied, aromas of cherry entwined with dried cranberry, unfolding tamarillo, hibiscus, herbs, mushroom and earthy notes. The wine shows purity of fruit, complex developed layers and lovely concentration. Integrated, lacy acidity elevates and lengthens to a hauntingly beautiful linger. This refined Pinot Noir possesses elegant layers of fruit, floral and earthy development, and persists to a long finish. Match with roasted quail and truffle risotto over the next 8 years. Clones 115, 667, 777, UCD6, Abel, fermented to 13.5% alc, aged in barriques, 20% new oak. 19+/20 pts (96 pts) Sep 2023 RRP $120
