Lamont Bendigo Central Otago Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 12-Jul-2018
Deep ruby-red colour, a little lighter in the edge. The nose is fresh with good depth and firm aromas of ripe, dark-red and black cherry fruit along with an amalgam of fresh and dark herbs, liquorice and a suggestion of complexing whole bunch stalk notes, unfolding dark-red florals. Medium-full bodied, the palate is fulsome with mouthfilling flavours of ripe black cherry fruit harmoniously entwined with dark herbs, liquorice and earth elements. The fruit forms a firm line with grainy tannin extraction providing plenty of structure. The wine flows with good energy from the fresh acidity, and the wine carries to an elegant, sustained finish. This is a youthfully fresh, black cherry fruited Pinot Noir with herb and liquorice detail on a mouthfilling palate with a firm core and plenty of structure. Match with lamb, beef and venison over the next 6-8 years. Hand-picked fruit, clones 667, 777. Abel and 115, from Bendigo, fermented with a portion of whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 25% new French oak barriques. Certified organic fruit. 450 cases made. 18.0+/20 Jul 2018 RRP $45.00
