Maori Point Pinot Noir 2017, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 28-Jul-2020
Deep, medium ruby-red with depth, sightly lighter on edge. The nose is softly-full with aromas of red plums, sour cherries, melded with sweet liquorice and deep florals, subtle notes of gamey, savoury underlay, unfolding oak spices element. Medium-full bodied, there's a core of savoury notes of wet leaves, game and earth, integrated with red plums and cherries, along with oak spices, sweet liquorice lingers to a sustained finish. The flavours have concentration, supported by powdery fine-grained tannin structure and lacy acidity. The savoury development and sweet liquorice element are well-integrated with the fruit, leaves a comforting sensation on the palate. This is an integrated Pinot Noir with flavours of red fruit and savoury developments on a fine-grained texture line. Match with lamb and duck over the next 3-5 years. Handpicked, native yeast fermented to 13.6% alc. Aged 11 months in French oak barrels, 22% new. Minimal sulfites, unfined and unfiltered. Vegan friendly. 18.5+/20 pts July 2020 RRP $38.95
