Collaboration Series Central Otago Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 23-May-2014
Moderately deep ruby-red colour, lighter on rim. The bouquet is fresh with softly penetrating aromas of black cherries intermixed with a subtle thyme herb and minerally amalgam, along with some seasoned oak elements, that grow in depth. Medium-full bodied, this has a good core of black cherry and berry fruits with spices and herbal detail. The flavours are tight and somewhat restrained, showing a gentle sweetness with balancing soft acidity. The palate has a fine, grainy mouthfeel from the tannin extraction which carries the wine to a soft, dry finish with black fruits and spicy elements. This is an elegantly bound Pinot Noir with soft black fruits and a dry textured line. Serve with poultry, pork and Mediterranean fare over the next 4 years. A collaboration between Jeff Poole and Matt Dicey. Fruit from the Cromwell Basin, fully destemmed and fermented to 13.8% alc., the wine spending 26 days on skins and aged 10 months in French oak. 336 cases made. 17.0/20 May 2014 RRP $24.99
