Fancrest Estate Pinot Noir 2018, North Canterbury

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 30-Nov-2023
Bright, crimson with a light bricking, lighter on the rim. The nose is elegant, with developed nuances and penetrating aromas of dried roses, black cherry, sun-dried plum, cinnamon, nutmeg, game, mushroom and a suggestion of Port. Medium-bodied, aromas of black cherry, dried plum interweaved with dried strawberry and raspberry, cinnamon, nutmeg, unfolding mushroom, game and Port nuance. A firm yet smooth tannin structure and zappy acidity carrying spice and a fresh finish. Match with pork and lamb ribs over the next 3-4 years. Fermented to 12.8% alc, unfined and unfiltered, zero added sulphites. Vegan friendly. BroGro organic certified. 18/20 pts (90 pts) Nov 2023 RRP $45
