Misha’s Vineyard Verismo Pinot Noir 2018, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 24-Apr-2023
Deep ruby-red, lighter on edge. This integrated, complex bouquet penetrates with plum, dark cherry, mushroom, cedar and spice aromas. Medium-full bodied, aromas of dark plum and dark cherry intertwined with thyme, mushroom, cedar, clove and cinnamon. The wine is complex, with a mixture of dark and dried fruit, developing aromas of mushroom and cedar. The fine-grained tannin framework is velvety and youthful with a nice grip, along with lively acidity providing vitality. This dark-fruited Pinot Noir shows complexity and a velvety mouthfeel, drinking excellently at 5 years of age. Match with roasted lamb and wild board over the next 5+ years. Cold-soaked for 5-7 days, fermented with 17% whole bunches, skin contact for an average of 26 days, aged in French oak hogsheads (300-litre barrels), 25% new oak. 13.5% alc. 19/20 pts (95 pts) Apr 2023 RRP $85
