Domaine Rewa Pinot Noir 2018, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 12-Jun-2020
Bright, medium ruby-red with a deep tone, youthful, even colour throughout. The bouquet is full, but restraint; beautiful fragrances of black cherries, blackberries entwined with the scent of violets in a field of thyme alongside a dusting of baking spices in the air. Medium-bodied, pure and fresh flavours of black cherries and blackberries carries a crisp acid line; unfolding layers of violet fragrance, thyme and a kick of black pepper and nutmeg spices. The mouthfeel has weight and power, a strong presence of fine-grained tannin extraction, contribute to a silky and elegant tannin structure. A note of liquorice melded with herbs and spices lingers to a long and sustained finish. This Pinot Noir has power and elegance, exhibiting ripened black fruit with balanced acidity, along with violet, herbs and spices nuances with a silky and structured tannin extraction. Will reward with moderate-term ageing. Match with pork belly and venison ribs over the next 7-10 years. Fruit from Lowburn, clone 5 and 113. Handpicked, two clones fermented separately, clone 113 with 20% whole bunch, all other destemmed. 13.3% alc. Aged in French oak barriques for 12 months, 26% new. Biodynamic farming. BioGro organic certified. 19/20pts June 2020 RRP $50
