Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 12-Jun-2020
Bright, medium ruby-red with depth, lighter on the rim. The nose is elegant and inviting, red cherries, red plums, red florals and herbs are well integrated; entwined with savoury development elements. Medium-bodied, flavours of red cherries, red plums are mellowed; unveiling aromas of red floral, thyme and spices; interweaved with the tightly framed silky tannin structure line. Tannin is smooth and silky in a well-structured frame of fine-grained extraction. The slight development of savoury element adding interest. Acidity is lively, providing freshness and energy, carries the wine to a spicy finish with a silky tannin grip. This is a well-integrated Pinot Noir showing slight development and mellowed characters, offers a smoothly fine-grained tannin structure. Match with game fare over the next 5 years. Fruit from Lowburn, clone 5 and 113. Handpicked, two clones fermented separately, each with approx 11% whole bunch, all other destemmed. Wild fermented to 13.4% alc. Aged in French oak barriques for 14 months, 23% new. Biodynamic farming. BioGro organic certified. 18+/20pts June 2020 RRP $50
