Q Wine Pinot Noir 2021, Waitaki Valley

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 05-Apr-2022
Bright, moderate crimson, lighter edged. This is a soft and delicate bouquet filled with raspberries, cherries melded with fine spices, red blossom and a hint of minerals. Medium-bodied, elegantly presented, raspberries, red cherries and red currants interweave rose, earth and minerals, subtle spices of cinnamon, nutmeg and black peppercorn linger to a lengthy finish. The fruit has weight and depth of flavour, growing in volume with floral fragrance and spice. Supple, silky tannin echoing chalky minerals added mouthfeel. This red-fruited Pinot Noir shows depth and elegance of fruit, delicate spice, and minerals details on a silky, long finish. Match with smoked duck and roasted quail over the next 5+ years. Fermented to 13.1% alc, aged 10 months in French oak, 15% new oak. 360 cases produced. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Apr 2022 RRP $58
