Greystone Organic Pinot Noir 2018, Waipara

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 05-Jun-2020
Bright, medium ruby-red colour with a youthful purple hue, even throughout. The nose is delicate with depth and intensity, unveiling aromas of dark cherries, raspberries, entwined with lifted florals and a fine layer of dry herbs; along with sweet oak spice elements. Medium-full bodied rich and elegant fruit flavours of dark cherries, dark raspberries showing off its youthful vibrancy of primary fruit. The fruit is intricate by dry herbs and oak spice elements along with lifted violet florals. Fresh and lacy acidity, supported by fine-grained tannin structure and alcohol power drives a long sustained finish. This is an elegant and refined Pinot Noir with aromas of dark fruit, floral and dry herbs details; lacy fresh acidity enlivened the wine and oak elements provides spices and silken fine-grained tannin structure. Match with wild duck and boar over the next 5+ years. Handpicked, 10% whole bunch, wild yeast fermented to 13.5% alc, aged in French oak barriques for 11 months, 30% new oak. Vegan. BioGro organic certified. 18.5/ 20pts June 2020 RRP$42
