Misha’s Vineyard ‘Impromptu’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 05-Sep-2015
Dark ruby-red colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is full and rounded with deep aromas of dark red berries and cherry fruit, unfolding nuances of thyme herbs, red florals and spice elements. Medium-full bodied, the palate features up-front fruit flavours of dark raspberries, cherries and dark herbs. The fruit is juicy and lively, with fresh, lacy acidity providing energy and vitality, combining with the fine, grainy tannin extraction to fill the palate. This has good mouthfeel and structure, unveiling some spice elements and oak cedar adding to the fruit interest. The wine carries to a sustained finish with rich and bright flavours of raspberries and thyme herbs. This is a vibrantly fruity Pinot Noir with flavours of dark raspberries and herbs, and plenty of balancing structure. Match with poultry and pork dishes over the next 5-6 years. 52% clone 115, 40% clone 4 and 4% each of 777 and 5, given a cold soak and indigenous yeast fermented to 14.0% alc. with 5-10% whole clusters, the wine spending 24 days on skins and aged 15 months in 18% new French oak. 1,232 dozen made. 18.0/20 Sep 2015 RRP $29.95
