Ellero ‘Pisa Terrace’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 21-Oct-2017
Ruby-red colour with some depth, a little lighter edged. This has a softly full nose with good depth of aromatics, showing red cherry and berry fruit intermingling with subtly savoury dried herbs and dark thyme herb complexities. Medium-full bodied, the palate has elegantly concentrated flavours of red cherry and berry fruit entwined with thyme herbs savoury herb-stalk elements and sensitive oaking. The mouthfeel ha light, grainy tannins providing balanced structure with integrated acidity. The wine flows positively, unfolding raspberry liqueur nuances, and carries to a lingering finish of red fruits and savoury herbs. This is a finely concentrated Pinot Noir with red cherry, berry and raspberry fruit along with complexing savoury herb notes. Match with wild duck and pork over the next 5-6 years. Clones 667, 777, 115, 5 and Abel from the ‘Pisa Terrace’ vineyard fermented to 13.6% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 20% new French oak.
