Providore Central Otago Pinot Noir 2017

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 12-Nov-2018
Full, deep, purple-hued black-red colour, near impenetrable, youthful in appearance. The nose is elegant and fine in proportion with concentrated aromas of savoury dark-red berry fruit along with an amalgam of plum fruit, dark herbs and suggestions of stalk perfumes and complexities. The aromatics build to form a deep core. Medium-full bodied, the palate is elegantly presented with refined and concentrated flavours of ripe, dark-red berry fruit and dark plums along with nuances of dark herbs sand savoury fresh herbs intermingling with stalk suggestion from the Abel clone. The fruit is rich and luscious, and forms a rounded, deep and dense heart, which is supported by plenty of fine-grained, flowery tannins. The acidity is soft and integrated and the wine carries to a soft, smooth, elegant and nuanced finish. This is a rich and plush, concentrated Pinot Noir with ripe dark-red berry and plum fruit with savoury herb elements on a soft, smooth but fine-structured palate. Serve with casseroles and slow-cooked game meat dishes over the next 6-7 years. Selected as the best 2017 ferment, Abel clone fruit from a single Queensberry vineyard, hand-picked, destemmed without crushing and fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine aged in tank followed by aging in French oak barriques. 290 cases made. 19.0-/20 Nov 2018 RRP $39.00
