Lowburn Ferry ‘Home Block’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 29-Sep-2014
Dark, deep, purple-hued ruby-red colour, a little lighter on rim. The nose is full and voluminous with a harmoniously interwoven aromas of ripe dark red berry fruits, violet florals, dark red plums and oak spices that unfold in layers of detail and perfume. Medium-bodied, rich, ripe and succulent flavours of dark red berry fruits, plums and florals form a rich and deep core. Violet florals, liquorice and spices emerge with very refined nuances of dark herbs, minerals and earth providing interest and complexity. The palate is silky and seamless, flowing smoothly, guided by very fine-grained tannins and acidity. This has great energy, poise and complete balance, carrying through to a very long, lingering finish of liquorice and plums. This is an elegant, aromatic, fine-grained, silky-smooth Pinot Noir with succulently rich dark red fruit flavours. Serve with poultry, pork and lamb over the next 6 – 8 years. Clones 5, 115, 667 and 777 destemmed and fermented with one-third by indigenous yeasts to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 29% new French oak. 19.0+/20 Sep 2014 RRP $55.00
