Fifth Bridge Serendipity Vineyard Pinot Noir 2013, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 30-Jun-2020
Dark, deep ruby-red with a lighter edge. The nose is powerful with depth, with a concentrated core of red cherries, blackberries, entwined with dark herbs, liquorice development and oak spices. Medium-full bodied red cherries, red berries and blackberries, melded with thyme, liquorice; and a layer of pepper and oak spices. The acidity is lively, carries the fruit with energy, showing youthfulness. The fine-grained tannin extraction is firm with a strong grip, leaves the palate dry, lingers with liquorice, Sichuan pepper and oak spices. This is a powerful Pinot Noir with flavours of red fruit, herbs and oak spices; with subtle development of liquorice on a firm, fine-grained tannin texture line. Match with slow-roasted lamb shoulder over the next 5 years. 18.5/20 pts June 2020 RRP tbc
