Locharburn Central Otago Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 27-Feb-2018
Moderately dark, deep ruby-red colour, paler on the edge with slight purple hues. The nose is fresh and firm with concentrated aromas of ripe dark cheery fruit with subtle notes of dark herbs, unfolding dark raspberry notes with a little liquorice and minerals. Medium-full bodied, the palate is bright and lively with fresh fruit flavours of dark-red cherries and raspberries, along with a subtle thread of dark-red florals, dark herbs and minerals. The mouthfeel is crisp and zesty with fresh acidity enlivening the fruit. Fine-grained tannin extraction underlines the fruit, with the acidity carrying the vibrant fruit to a lingering finish. This is a bright and lively, aromatic dark-red cherry and raspberry fruited Pinot Noir with crisp acidity and fine-grained tannins. Match with tuna and salmon, and poultry and pork over the next 4+ years. Clones 5, 777 and 667, from vines 14 y.o., the fruit hand-picked and fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 20% new oak. 18.0-/20 Feb 2018 RRP $38.00
