Gate 20 Two ‘Felton Road’ Bannockburn Central Otago Pinot Noir 2009

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 15-Mar-2011
Made from Dijon clone fruit given a cold soak, wild yeast fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged in 25% new French oak for 11 months. Light purple-hued ruby-red colour, this has a delicate, ethereal bouquet of cool red berry fruits with herbal notes and some toasty, charry oak. A lighter bodied wine with tight cherryish fruit flavours, the acidity is prominent and combines with the tannin to provide a firm, slightly lean, but fine textured palate. There are dried herb notes and hints of tobacco along with a little sappiness that add interest. The wines finishes with a sweet fruit flourish. Drink over the next 3-4 years. 15.5-/20 Feb 2011 RRP $35.00  www.gate20two.co.nz
