Domaine Rewa Pinot Noir 2017, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Northland & Auckland
Review Date : 12-Jun-2020
Bright, medium ruby-red with depth, even colour throughout. The bouquet is attractive and concentrated with fragrances of red florals, raspberries and red cherries; melded with thyme and lifted spices. Medium-bodied with a lightness; energized by mouthwatering acidity. Tightly concentrated flavours of red cherries, raspberries; interweaved dried red florals and spices. Spicy oak and dark herb aromas add interest, with bright acidity enhancing the sweetness and providing liveliness to the tightly bounded, fine-structured smooth tannin. A little alcohol power drives the wine, which finishes with long and lingering liquorice and spiced red cherries. This is a concentrated Pinot Noir, flavours of red fruit, herbs and spicy oak on a finely-structured palate. Match with pork and duck over the next 4-6 years. Fruit from Lowburn, clone 5 and 113, with 10% whole bunch fermented together in open-top tanks to 13.7% alc. Aged in French oak barriques for 11 months, 27% new. Biodynamic farming. BioGro organic certified. 18.5/20pts June 2020 RRP $58
