Coal Pit Tiwha Pinot Noir 2019, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 16-Mar-2021
Deep crimson with a purple hue, lighter purple on edged. The nose is captivating, full and perfumed, nuances of cherry blossom, violet melded with dark cherries, black Doris plums, underlined herbs, moss and earthy elements. Medium-full bodied, the palate is elegantly presented with poised concentration; aromas of dark-toned cherries and young plums adorned by violet, cherry blossom, herbaceous notes of thyme and mint, followed by a savoury, earthy, peppery, mineral long finish. Powdery, silky fine-grained tannin is sleek and stylish; well-proportioned fruit and acid show ripeness and vitality. Flavour lingers harmoniously with strength and elegance. This is a class Pinot Noir with harmonious aromas on a sleek palate. Match with game fowls with black truffle sauce and wild boar over the next 5-8 years. Fruit from Gibbston sub-region, handpicked, 25% whole bunch, fermented to 13.5% alc. Aged in French oak for 10 months, 28% new oak. 19+/20 (96 pts) Mar 2021 RRP $57
