Locharburn Central Otago Pinot Noir 2009

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 06-Jul-2011
Moderately deep ruby-red in colour, this has a soft, fully fragrant, lifted nose of soft red berryfruits and red florals, complexed by some funky dried herb, oak and game elements. An elegantly proportioned wine, the palate shows sweet and juicy small red fruit flavours lifted with floral notes. There are nuances of earth, dried herbs and game with oak that unfold in the glass. Fresh acidity and very fine-grained tannins contribute to a silky texture that carries throughout the line and length of the wine. Made from clones 5, 777 and 667, vines 7 y.o., fully destemmed, given a cold soak and fermented to 14.0% alc. The wine was then aged 8 months in 30% new French oak barrels. Match with firm-fleshed seafood, duck and most Asian cuisine over the next 5-6+ years. 17.5+/20 Jul 2011 RRP $35.00
