Invivo ‘Michelle’s Central Otago Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 19-Aug-2018
Dark, deep, ruby-red colour with slight garnet tints, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is full with aromas of ripe dark-red and black plum fruit interwoven with a layer of liquorice, spice and nutty oak unfolding subtle earthy and cedary elements. Full-bodied, the palate is fulsome with rich and sweet flavours of dark-red berry fruit and black plums, along with spices and liquorice. The fruit is layered with spicy, cedary and nutty oak which adds a degree of richness and exoticism. The mouthfilling flavours are underlined by fine-grained tannin extraction lending structure and line. The acidity is integrated. The wine carries to a long, cedary and spicy oaky finish. This is a mouthfilling ripe Pinot Noir with black berry and plum fruit with spicy oak and a well-structured palate. Match with slow-cooked game meat dishes over the next 6+ years. A five barrel selection. Predominantly clone 667 fruit from Bannockburn, fully destemmed and fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 20% new oak. 17.5+/20 Aug 2018 RRP $40.00
