Neck Of The Woods Pinot Noir 2021, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 27-Apr-2023
Moderately deep purple with a ruby hue, even colour throughout. The nose is savoury and herbaceous, with depth, penetrating aromas of black plum, cherry, forest floor, dried shiitake, thyme and delicate spice. Medium-full bodied, concentrated aromas of black plums and cherries entwined with savoury earthiness, forest floor, dried shiitake, thyme and black pepper dusting. Fine-grained tannins coat the palate in silk and unfold delicate black pepper and nutmeg. The wine is integrated and complex with a depth of flavour, carrying broody savouriness to a long, sustained lingering. This Central Otago Pinot Noir is concentrated with harmonious dark fruit, herb and savoury details, and a lingering earthy finish. Match with lamb roast and duck over the next 6-8 years. 14.5% alc. 19-/20 pts (95 pts) Apr 2023 RRP
