Lure ‘The Hudson Joe’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 08-Nov-2017
Moderately deep ruby-red colour, a little lighter on the edge. This has a full and voluminous nose with complex interwoven aromas of dark-red cherry and berry fruit along with savoury fresh and dark herbs and savoury perfumes with red florals and a suggestion of game . Medium-full bodied, the palate has a rich, up-front flavours with a concentrated heart of dark-red berry fruit entwined with dark and thyme herbs and complexing stalk-like nuances and hints of earth and game. The flavours are mouthfilling, and the fruit is supported by fine-grained tannin extraction and balanced acidity. The palate flows positively and carries to a light, lingering finish of cherry fruit and herbs. This is a rich, up-front Pinot Noir with dark cherry and berry flavours with savoury and thyme herb complexities on a fine-grained palate. Match with wild duck and pork, and roasted or grilled red meats over the next 5-6 years. Clones 113, 114, 115 and 5 from ungrafted vines, 22-24 y.o., from the ‘Carrick’ vineyard, Bannockburn, fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 11 months in 18% new French oak. 400 dozen made. 18.0+/20 Nov 2017 RRP $75.00
