Osawa ‘Winemaker’s Collection’ Hawke’s Bay Pinot Noir 2011

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Hawke's Bay
Review Date : 23-Nov-2012
Fruit hand-picked and fully destemmed, given a cold soak and fermented to 13.97% alc., the wine spending 21-25 days on skins and aged in 90% new French oak. Light ruby-red colour with purple hues, lighter on rim. The bouquet features soft and elegant, ethereal aromas of spiced cherry fruit intermingling with fragrant red florals and oak. The nose builds in richness and depth. Medium-full bodied, flavours of red cherry fruit, red florals and spicy oak are supported by fine-grained tannins, lively acidity, and balanced alcohol forming a concentrated core. The palate has very good drive and line and is bright and sweet with vitality and energy. The fruit flavours are sustained on a long, lingering finish. This is an elegant and lively Pinot Noir with drive and good power. Serve with Asian cuisine over the next 4-5 years. 18.0/20 Nov 2012 RRP $TBA
