Mt Difficulty ‘Long Gully’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 05-Feb-2014
Very full, even, vibrant dark-red colour. This has a very full nose with a dense core of earthy red cherry and berry fruits. There are complex nuances of oak, dried herbs and oak, with nutty, slightly resinous and mineral detail. Medium-full bodied and elegant in size, rich, juicy and sweet fruit flavours unfold spice and dried herb elements with hints of earth and spices. There is good vinosity to the core. The fruit lusciousness is enhanced by good levels of acidity and the palate line underscored by fine background extract and tannin. This features sweet and linear fruit drive with freshness. Complexing earthy detail and subtle herb and oak interest will grow over the next 5-7 years. Winemaker: Matt Dicey. 18.5/20 Jan 2014 RRP $N/A
