Elephant Hill Pinot Noir 2019, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 06-May-2021
Dark, even ruby-red with some transparency. The nose is gentle with broody aromas of ripe fruit, a mixture of red and dark berries, cherries and a hint of sweet herbs. Medium-full bodied, nuances of red berry fruit underlined dark cherries, subtle seasoning from spicy oak and a touch of herb unveiled, ample fine-grained tannin added savouriness and linger to a dry, herbaceous finish. The tannin structure is bold and broad on the palate, lends a drying mouthfeel; brilliant acidity lengthens the finish. Match with braised pork leg and lamb ribs over the next 3-5 years. Fruit was destemmed, cold-soaked for 4 days, fermented to 14.2% alc, aged in French oak for 11 months, 30% new oak. 18.5-/20 pts (92 pts) May 2021 RRP $36
