Main Divide Pinot Noir 2021, North Canterbury

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 10-Oct-2023
Moderately deep ruby-red, lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full, with aromas of cherry and raspberry melded with black pepper, clove, vanilla and earthy underlay. Medium-full bodied, aromas of cherry black raspberry interweaved a hint of smoke, clove, black pepper, vanilla and earthy clay elements. Smoky and toasty oak elements enrich the sweet fruit; plush, ripe tannins elegantly frame the wine with structure and linger to a sustained finish. This toasty Pinot Noir shows elegant, sweet fruit, lively acidity and a fine, long finish. Match with pork roast and lamb over the next 5+ years. Fermented with 40% whole bunch in vats to 13.5% alc, aged in oak barriques for 18 months, 20% new oak, underwent MLF. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Oct 2023 RRP $26.99
