John Forrest ‘Collection’ Waitaki Valley North Otago Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 24-Aug-2017
Very dark and full black-red colour, still with suggestions of purple. This is youthful in appearance. The bouquet has very ripe black berried fruits entwined with black florals, dark herbs and toasty oak, unfolding a layering of savoury secondary detail. On palate rich and concentrated with black berried fruits and dark herbs, with subtle, savoury nuances, earth and dark minerals. The fruit is underlined by a supple tannin core, with the acidity lending good freshness and energy. The flavours have intensity and length and are enlivened by the acidity. This shows the 2010 vintage structure and ripe black fruits. The wine will live for another 5+ years. 19.0-/20 Aug 2017 RRP $N/A
