Pyramid Valley Korimako Pinot Noir 2020, North Canterbury

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 17-Apr-2023
Moderately deep ruby-red, slightly lighter on the rim. This has a lifted, fragrant bouquet of strawberry, plum, black cherry, hibiscus, wild herbs, nutmeg and vanilla. Medium-light bodied, savoury on the palate, strawberry, plum, and cherry aromas entwined with black pepper, nutmeg, hibiscus flowers, thyme and mushroom. Savoury undergrowth slowly unfolds along a silky mouthfeel. Lacy acidity flows effortlessly to a fragranced, refined closing. This exquisite Pinot Noir features a lifted, fragranced bouquet followed by a savoury, earthy, silky, lengthy finish. Match with Perigord truffle risotto and smoke pigeon over the next 6-8 years. Handpicked from a heritage Waipara vineyard planted in 2002, fermented with wild yeasts to 12.5% alc, then aged in French oak for 18 months before bottling, unfined & unfiltered. 19+/20 pts (96 pts) Apr 2023 RRP $85
