Mcarthur Ridge Brass Knocker Pinot Noir 2020, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 16-Sep-2021
Moderately deep ruby-red colour with a black core, lighter on the rim with a purple hue. The nose is elegantly full, taut and juicy aromas of strawberries, raspberries, along with cherries melded with red florals and a hint of herbs. Medium-bodied, the palate possesses juicy red cherries, strawberries and raspberries in the mix, adorned by black pepper, subtle dark herbs and cherry blossoms. A hint of mocha and liquorice lingers on the closing. The mouthfeel is smooth with a light grip and supple tannin extraction; balanced, lively acidity lends a bright, peppery finish. This elegant Pinot Noir features juicy red fruit, pepper, and herbs on a fine-textured mouthfeel. Match with pork belly and duck over the next 4-5 years. 18+/20 (91 pts ) Sept 2021 RRP $21.99
