Hawkshead Pinot Noir 2022, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 16-Aug-2023
Moderately deep ruby-red, lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full with a sweet tone of cherry, blackberry, herbs and spice dusting, Medium-bodied, aromas of blackberry, cherry melded with thyme, oregano and cinnamon. The dusty mouthfeel carries the sweet fruit with poise, integrated acidity and herbs leave a longing for more. This Pinot Noir is harmonious with a beautiful balance, flaunting sweet fruit and herbs on a fine-textured palate. Match with duck breast and lamb loins over the next 5-7 years. The fruit is from Lowburn (70%), Gibbston (18%) and Bannockburn (12%), fermented with 100% indigenous yeasts to 13% alc, aged 10 months in French oak barrels, 10% new oak. Unfined, vegan friendly. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Aug 2023 RRP $50
