Matua Valley ‘Single Vineyard’ Cromwell Basin Central Otago Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 09-Sep-2011
Dark ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, this has a fresh, elegant, but intense nose of dark red berry and cherry fruit with raspberry pastille notes, lifted with attractive red florals. Full-bodied, this has lively, bright dark cherry fruit flavours with excellent depth and concentration, backed by fine-textured, firm tannin extraction. Fresh acidity adds to the youthfulness of the wine, which has a sustained, spicy oak nuanced finish. Fruit from the Cromwell Basin, given a cold soak and fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in seasoned and new barriques. Serve with spicy duck, pork and lamb dishes over the next 5-7+ years. 18.0+/20 Sep 2011 RRP $69.99
