Misha’s Vineyard Impromptu Pinot Noir 2019, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 24-Jun-2020
Bright, light ruby-red with depth and a black hue. The nose is youthful with power, intensely fragranced with deep floral, dark herbs; along with flavours of cherries and red berries melded with a savoury tone and dusty cinnamon spices. Medium-light bodied juicy red cherries and red berries at the core, entwined with subtle dark herbs and deep florals; along with cinnamon and nutmeg spices and a savoury undertone. The lively acidity brings out the freshness of the fruit; the youthful tannin added a dusty, firm grip to the mouthfeel. This is a young Pinot Noir with juicy red fruit and savoury complexity, on a finely extracted dusty tannin structure. Enjoy with game and grilled lamb over the next 4-6 years. Handpicked, 31% whole bunch, fermented in open-top fermenters to 14% alc. Aged in French oak barrels for 9 months, 9% new oak. 18/20 pts June 2020 RRP $30
