Maori Point Gold Digger Pinot Noir 2019, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 28-Jul-2020
Bright, medium ruby-red with some dept, faintly lighter on edge. The nose is well-packed with an amalgam of red fruits; cranberries, red berries, mulberries lifted by deep red florals and subtle spices, along with a layer of stony mineral. Medium-bodied, flavours of red berries, cranberries and cherries are concentrated and vibrant; melded with toasty oak and a hint of dark chocolate. The fruit has concentration and focused, underlying fine-grained tannin extraction. The acidity is balanced, provides freshness, lifted the spices and florals to a supple finish. This is a vibrant, bold Pinot Noir with immediate accessibility with flavours of red fruit, deep florals and oak detail and a supple, fine tannin structure. Match with roasted duck and pork dish over the next 4 years. Handpicked, native yeasts fermented to 14.1% alc. Unfined, unfiltered. Vegan friendly. 18/20 pts July 2020 RRP $29.95
