Pick & Shovel Reserve Pinot Noir 2020, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 28-Feb-2024
Light ruby-red with some depth, even colour throughout. The nose is gently full with aromas of cherry, blackberry, herbs and baking spices. Medium-bodied, aromas of cherry and blackberry intermixed with wild raspberry, thyme, vanilla, nutmeg and cracked pepper. The fruit shows concentration with a lively acid backbone; the spices left a prickly sensation and a grip on the mouthfeel. This Pinot Noir shows lovely ripeness and concentration of fruit. Match with duck and pork over the next 3 years. Barrel selection, fermented to 13.9% alc, aged in French oak. 16.5/20 pts (83 pts) Feb 2024 RRP 29.99
