Paddy Borthwick Right Hand Pinot Noir 2019, Wairarapa

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Wairarapa & Wellington
Review Date : 11-Dec-2020
Dark ruby-red with a purple hue, slightly lighter edged. The nose is rich with concentration, aromas of dark cherries, plums, blackberries, intermix thyme, spices and earth. Medium-full bodied, the palate is concentrated with dark aromas of black cherries, blackberries, plums, along with dark liquorice, ash and herbs. Tannin is dusty and fine-grained, integrated with the dark shaded fruit, formed a concentrated core. Lively acidity provides freshness and balance to the rich palate, lends a bitter and sweet, sustained closing. This is a rich Pinot Noir with depth and concentration of dark fruit, thyme along with ash, earth element and a dusty tannin mouthfeel. Match with venison and lamb over the next 5-7 years. Selected premium parcels and barrel selection, 14.9% alc, aged in 100% French oak for 11 months, 40% new barrels, minimal fining and filtration. 1,730 bottles produced. 18.5+/20 pts Dec 2020 RRP $55
