Mondillo Central Otago Pinot Noir 2016

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 20-Dec-2018
Dark, deep, ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, a little lighter on the edge. The nose is softly full and voluminous with fragrant aromas of ripe dark-red and black cherry and berry fruits interwoven with violet florals forming a fine, deep core with soft, dark herb nuances along with hints of spice and oak. Medium-full bodied, the palate has sweetly rich and luscious, finely concentrated flavours of ripe, dark-red cherry and berry fruits melded with an array of dark-red and violet florals, interwoven with dark herb elements and a little spice. The fruit richness is enlivened by fresh acidity and tempered by fine-grained, flowery tannin extraction. This has very good linearity and carries to a long, nuanced finish of dark-red fruits, florals and herbs. This is a sweetly rich and luscious, finely concentrated Pinot Noir with ripe dark-red and black fruits lifted by fragrant florals and herb notes on a fine-structured palate. Match with poultry and pork over the next 6+ years. Clones 114, 115, 667, 777, 5 and Abel, from vines 15 y.o., fully destemmed and fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine spending 21 days on skins and aged 11 months in 30% new French oak. 19.0-/20 Dec 2018 RRP $45.00 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade’, the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews’ operates
