Lime Hill Pinot Noir 2018, Wairarapa

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 15-Jan-2021
Deep ruby-black with transparency and faintly filmy, lighter edged. The nose is aromatic and full, growing intensity, savoury nuances of black cherries with a hint of red plums and blackberries, entwined with earthy notes, spice and aromatic herbs. Medium-full bodied, the palate has an overall savoury tone, aromas of black fruit interweave mint, dark herbs, almost medicinal, Amaro nuanced; along with puncheon spices and earth. The mouthfeel is chalky with silky tannin grip, supported by integrated acidity, persist along a savoury line to a very long, sustained finish. This is a savoury and aromatic Pinot Noir with purity and concentration on a silky tannin mouthfeel. Match this with wild boar, duck over the next 6+ years. 19+/20 pts (96 pts) Jan 2021 RRP $49
