Mcarthur Ridge Reserve Pinot Noir 2020, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 16-Sep-2021
Moderately deep, ruby-black with a purple hue, lighter purple on edge. The nose is full and voluminous, packed with ripe fruit aromas of cherries, plums interweave thyme, unfolding a hint of savoury note and earth. Medium-full bodied, the palate has rich aromas of plums and cherries, entwined with black peppercorn, thyme flowers, along with subtle savoury element underlying earth. The acidity is balanced, bright with a kick, flows with black pepper and succulent ripe fruit flavours. Finely extracted tannin is powdery, flow smoothly to a lingering finish. This is a voluminous Pinot Noir with ripe fruit flavours complexed by herbs and earthy elements. Match with venison and lamb over the next 5+ years. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Sept 2021 RRP $36.99
