Misha’s Vineyard ‘The High Note’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 20-Aug-2018
Moderately deep ruby-red colour with garnet hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is vibrant in expression with fragrant, near ethereal aromas of red berry fruits finely interwoven with lifted red florals and perfumes, subtle notes of dark herbs, unfolding liquorice and spice elements from the core. The aromatics are refined and beautiful. Medium-full bodied, the palate is elegant in proportion with very good depth and intensity of aromatic red berry fruit along with a red floral array, dark herbs and a suggestion of whole bunch stalk elements. The palate is poised, with sweet and rich fruit underlined by fine-grained flowery tannin extraction and soft, lacy acidity. The palate core flows with linearity leading to a long and sustained, elegant finish. This is a beautifully elegant and aromatic Pinot Noir with sweetly rich red berry fruits and fragrant florals on a refined palate structure. Serve with poultry and pork over the next 6+ years. A blend of 50% clone 5, 28% 777, 21% 667 and 11% Abel, indigenous yeast fermented with 20% whole bunches to 14.0% alc., the wine spending 24 days on skins on average, and aged 11 months in 33% new 300 L French oak barrels, then given another 7 months in barrel and tank. 19.0-/20 Aug 2018 RRP $45.00
