Devil’s Staircase Central Otago Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 17-Dec-2013
Moderately dark, even ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, lighter on rim. The bouquet is bright and fresh with harmoniously melded aromas of raspberries and cherry fruit, lifted with whole berry red plum, raspberry liqueur, confectionary notes and subtle herb nuances. Medium-bodied, vibrantly fresh, primary-fruited flavours of juicy raspberries form an elegantly presented palate. The flavours reveal luscious aromatic red floral and pastille confectionary elements. The mouthfeel is underlined by fine-grained tannins and fresh, lacy acidity forming a near-firm and positive flow that leads to a gently nuanced finish of raspberries, liquorice and herbs. This is a pretty and fresh, juicy, raspberry-fruited Pinot Noir with fine tannin support. Match with antipasto, tapas and poultry over the next 3+ years Multiple clones, the fruit from Pisa and Gibbston in equal portions, fermented with a small percentage of whole clusters to 13.3% alc., the wine spending 2-3 weeks on skins and bottled without oak contact. Approx. 9,300 cases made. 17.5-/20 Dec 2013 RRP $29.95
