Misha’s Vineyard The High Note Pinot Noir 2021, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 24-Apr-2023
Deep, ruby-red, lighter on the rim. The nose is gently full, with aromas of cherry, raspberry, rosehip, herb and spice. Medium-full bodied, richer on the palate with aromas of cherry, raspberry and a savoury edge, entwined with rosehip, wild thyme, liquorice, earth and black pepper. The wine is structured with a fine tannin framework, unfolding dark herbs and spice details with a dry, red-fruited background. Integrated, fine acidity carries a long, broody finish. This savoury Pinot Noir has a velvety mouthfeel with dark herb, earth and spice front and red-fruited support. Match with herb-crushed lamb and beef bourguignon over the next 6+ years. Cold-soaked for 5-7 days, natural yeasts fermented with 12% whole bunches, skin contact for an average of 26 days, aged in French oak hogsheads (18% new 300-litre barrels). 14% alc. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Apr 2023 RRP $48
