Ostler Waitaki Valley Pinot Noir 2018, Waitaki Valley

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 26-Aug-2020
Bright, even, ruby-red with a dark-garnet hue. The nose is softly full, nuances of red florals, chalk, cherries entwined with earth and a fine dusting of spice. The aromatics unveil mouthwatering elements as the wine aerated. Medium-bodied, red cherries, raspberries are fresh and rich flavoured, unveiling liquorice, florals, spices and an earthy undertone. The palate is silky with delicately extracted tannin, supple and dusty; along with chalky minerals flows with lacy acidity enhancing the mouthwatering mouthfeel. The wine has an elegantly concentrated core, carrying to a lingering, juicy red fruit, earthy-nuanced finish. This is a youthful and fresh Pinot Noir with flavours of red fruit, earth and spices on a fine-textured palate. Match with smoked duck breast and Chinese crispy pork belly over the next 3-5 years. 18.5/20 pts Aug 2020 RRP $35
