Coxs’ Vineyard Gibbston Pinot Noir 2016, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 05-Jun-2020
Bright, light ruby-red with depth, lighter on edge. The bouquet is mellow, and poise with fragrant of red florals, cherries, plums entwined with savoury mushrooms and a layer of an earthy undertone. Medium-bodied, the palate is soft and graceful with a concentrated core of cherries and plums melded with red florals scent, developments of savoury and earthy elements enriched the complexity. The fruit is guided by a sour cherry toned acid, flows with good energy; silken fine-grained tannin provides a well-structured frame, leads to focus linearity. This is an alluring, gracefully developed Gibbston Pinot Noir with charming fruit, delicate florals and savoury elements, framed by silky fine-grained tannin. Serve with duck and quail over the next 5 years. A mix of clone UCD5, UCD6, 115. 28% whole bunch, fermented to 13% alc. Aged 11 months in French oak, 28% new. 867 bottles produced. 19.5/20pts June 2020 RRP$90
