Fifth Bridge Central Otago Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 12-Oct-2015
Even, dark ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, lighter on rim. The nose is gently voluminous with vinosity and depth, though the fruit aromatics somewhat restrained. There are dark red cherry and raspberry fruits, intermingling with thyme herb and spice elements, and some nutty oak. Medium-full bodied, the flavours of dark raspberry fruit softly fill the mouth, and unfold subtle thyme herb and spice detail. The fruit has richness, and the mouthfeel is balanced by supple tannins and textures, and integrated, harmonious acidity. As the wine flows, the palate grows in sweetness, weight and presence, and the flavours are carried to a rich and luscious finish with raspberry liqueur notes. This is a soft, full, raspberry-fruited Pinot Noir with restrained flavours and a supple mouthfeel. Match with pork, lamb and beef over the next 4+ years. Clones 10/5, 5, 6, 114, 115, 667 and 777 from vineyards in the Cromwell Basin, indigenous yeast fermented with a very small portion of whole bunches to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 20% new French oak. 17.0/20 Oct 2015 RRP $26.00
