Northburn Station Central Otago Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 28-May-2015
Full, deep, purple-red colour, very youthful in appearance. The nose is tightly bound with fresh, primary aromas of raspberries and dark red cherries, intermingling with herb nuances. The fruit is shy and restrained, but reveals red and violet florals in the glass. Medium-full bodied, the fruit flavours are tightly bound and restrained in expression. The dark red cherry and berry fruit flavours grow in richness and sweetness, and herb and floral elements unfold. The palate has a fine-grained, firm tannin line with fresh, lacy acidity lending tension and energy, carrying the wine to a light, dry, light-textured finish. This is a tightly held, restrained Pinot Noir with fresh, aromatic primary fruit and a fine-grained tannin line. Match with poultry and pork dishes. It will become richer and develop over the next 5-6 years. Multi-clone blend from ‘Northburn Station’, hand-picked, fully destemmed and fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged 10 months in French oak. 17.5/20 May 2015 RRP $29.95
