Coxs’ Vineyard Gibbston Pinot Noir 2017, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 25-May-2020
Bright, medium ruby-red, lighter on the rim. The nose is soft, fragrant with gentle aromas of plums, red cherries, raspberries with aromatics of savouriness, salted plums, dried shiitake mushroom and crushed rock minerals melded with soft notes of thyme, great intensity. Medium-full bodied, it has power and elegantly concentrated red cherries, raspberries, salted plums, lifted notes of thyme and liquorice. The palate has fine-grain tannin lacey acidity lending vitality. The wine is finely structured with soft grainy tannin, cool-climate characters of lacey acidity along with nuances of red fruit and thyme, powerful and elegant. Drink now to 2028, match with venison, duck or wild boar. The wine was fermented to 12.5% alc. 25% whole bunch, matured 11 months in French oak, 27% new. 2432 bottles produced. 19/20pts May 2020 RRP$70
