Fifth Bridge Central Otago Pinot Noir 2011

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 16-Jul-2013
Bendigo fruit, 50% from ‘Folding Hills’ and 50% from ‘Highwater’ the wines made respectively by Fred Reinds and Dean Shaw, seeing 9-12 months in barrel, blended to 14.0% alc. Moderately deep ruby-red colour with light purple hues on edge. The bouquet is slender in proportion but well-packed with aromas of dark red cherry and berry fruits, lifted with some floral perfumes, revealing undertones of dried herbs, earth and oak spices. Medium-bodied, the fruit flavours of dark red berry fruit, herbs and earth form a concentrated core. The fruit is a little subdued in expression, but is supported by a soft extraction and fresh, balanced acidity that provides good drive. The wine finishes gently with an amalgam of red fruits, spices and game. This is an elegant, supple and shy Pinot Noir with red berry flavours with dried herb interest. Match with poultry and pork over the next 4-5 years. 17.0+/20 Jul 2013 RRP $26.00
