Misha’s Vineyard ‘Verismo’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2008

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 09-Mar-2018
Moderately deep, garnet-hued ruby-red colour with some depth, paler on the edge. The bouquet is voluminous with well-packed and firm aromas of aromatic dark-red berry and plum fruit intermixed with dried herbs, some secondary undergrowth notes, along with nuances of earth, spice and fragrant oak. This has a degree of opulence, and shows good presence. Medium-full bodied, the palate has mouthfilling flavours of vibrant, juicy, savoury dark-red berry and plum fruit, entwined with dried herbs, undergrowth and nutty oak. The fruit is lively and supported by fine, grainy tannin structure and balanced acidity providing drive, grip and body. The wine carries with good energy to a fulsome finish. This is a fulsome, vibrant, rich red-fruited Pinot Noir with complexing savoury dried herb and earthy detail on a fine-structured palate. Match with slow-cooked lamb, beef and venison dishes, and semi-hard cheeses over the next years. A barrel selection wine. 53% clone 5, 34% 115 and 13% 667, fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 14.3% alc., the wine spending 24 days on skins and aged 14 months in approx. 62% new 300 L French oak barrels. 53 dozen made. 18.5+/20 Feb 2018 RRP $N/A
