Pyramid Valley North Canterbury Pinot Noir 2020

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 17-Apr-2023
Moderately deep dusty crimson, slightly lighter on edge. This has a soft, sweet-fruited bouquet of ripe strawberry, cherry, dark herbs, spice and a savoury nuance. Medium-bodied, bright on the entry with ripe strawberry and dark cherry unfolding a broody, earthy-toned undergrowth, dark herbs, nutmeg and cinnamon. The Velvety tannin framework reflects earthy undergrowth and savoury details, supported by an integrated acidity to a moody, earthy, long finish. This seductive Pinot Noir possesses bright fruit and a gradually earthy, savoury, broody finish. Match with roasted lamb shoulder and herby pork casserole over the next 5-7 years. Handpicked, fermented with wild yeasts to 13% alc, then aged in French oak for 18 months before bottling, unfined & unfiltered. 19-/20 pts (95 pts) Apr 2023 RRP $50
