Misha’s Vineyard Tempo Pinot Noir 2021, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 06-Sep-2022
Deep ruby-red with a purple hue, lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full, with bright aromas of blackberry, dark cherry and sweet spice. Medium-bodied, aromas of blackberry and dark cherry meld with vanilla, cinnamon and chocolate. Lively acidity enlivens the dark fruit and flows smoothly; supple tannins coat the palate in dark chocolate. This youthful Pinot Noir possesses straightforward fruit and line, decorated with spice and chocolatey tannin. Match with lamb koftas and roasted pork shoulder over the next 3-5 years. Fermented in open top fermenter with 27% whole bunches, cold soaked for 5-7 days, naturally fermented to 14% alc, 25 days on skins, racked to 300-litre French oak barrels for 9 months approx, 3% new oak. Inoculated MLF in barrels. 17/20 pts (85 pts) Sep 2022 RRP $30
