Coal Pit ‘Tiwha’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 26-Mar-2017
Deepish ruby-red colour, lighter on the edge. The nose is elegantly concentrated with intense and integrated aromas of dark-red berry fruit entwined with dark herbs and subtle, complexing stalk and earthy notes. The aromatics grow seamlessly in volume with aeration. Medium-bodied, the palate features vibrant and near-juicy fruit flavours of dark raspberries and red berry fruit melded with notes of dark herbs and subtle earthy and stalky elements. The fruit forms a fine, concentrated core supported by fine-grained tannin structure and integrated acidity. The wine flows with good linearity to a moderately long finish. This is an elegantly concentrated Pinot Noir with dark red fruits entwined with subtle herb and complexing herb and earthy notes on a fine-grained palate. Match with pork, lamb and beef dishes over the next 5 years. Hand-picked fruit, a multi-clone mix from the Coal Pit vineyard, vines planted 1994-2001, given a cold soak and fermented with 10% whole bunches to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 12 months in 40% new French oak. 18.0/20 Mar 2017 RRP $44.95
