Maori Point Pinot Noir 2022, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 30-Nov-2023
Moderate ruby-red with a purple shade, lighter on the rim. The nose is gentle with a voluminous bouquet, penetrating aromas of plum, black cherry, spice and soft herbs. Medium-bodied, plum and black cherry aromas entwined with black pepper, cinnamon and young thyme. The fruit is plush with lovely freshness; spices elevate, along with a ripe tannin framework and a savoury finish. This Pinot Noir is nicely structured with ripe and smooth tannin, flaunting plush fruit and spice. Match with lamb koftas and hare over the next 6+ years. Handpicked, naturally fermented to 14.1% alc, aged in French oak barrels, 20% new oak. Unfined, unfiltered. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Dec 2021 RRP $45
