Elephant Hill Central Otago Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 24-Nov-2015
Moderately dark, even ruby-red colour, with a lighter edge, youthful in appearance. The nose is elegantly and firm with softly concentrated aromas of dark-red berry fruits lifted by red florals , unfolding subtle layers of thyme herbs. Some spice and liquorice notes emerge, and the nose builds in depth and concentration in the glass. Medium-full bodied, the palate features bright, juicy and sweet soft red berry and cherry fruit flavours, entwined with thyme herbs, spices and liquorice notes. The fruit forms an elegantly concentrated line with fine, grainy tannins and fresh, lively acidity lending a plush, supple mouthfeel. The sweet fruit and lively acidity carry through to a sustained finish of dark red berry fruits and spices. This is a bright, sweet, juicy and elegant Pinot Noir with dark fruits, liquorice and spices, and a lively, supple mouthfeel. Match with poultry and pork over the next 5 years. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Maori Point’ vineyard, Tarras, destemmed and fermented with 5% whole clusters to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 25% new French oak. 18.0/20 Nov 2015 RRP $34.00
