Rockburn Eleven Barrels Parkburn Pinot Noir 2019, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 31-Aug-2020
Deep, bright ruby-black with some depth, slightly lighter on the rim. The nose is gentle, pleasingly fragrant, aromatic black cherry-plums, entwined with thyme, spices and an undertone of mineral tension. Medium-bodied, black cherries, sweet plums are highly aromatic, along with red florals and thyme, flows on a milk chocolate toned tannin and a mineral tension underlay. The mouthfeel is smooth with fine powdery tannin and a light grip, reminiscent of milk chocolate with the cocoa and round-edged; flows along a mineral line. The fruit has good concentration and ripeness, showing good intensity and length, enlivened by balanced acidity, hauling to a sustained finish. The wine is well-proportioned with its fruit and tannin, harmoniously in sync with each other, ready to enjoy now and has potential for longer-term ageing. Match with lamb and venison over the next 8 years. 100% Pinot Noir from Parkburn, clone 777. 13.5% alc. Aged in French oak for 14 months, 18% new. 19-/20 pts Aug 2020 RRP $96
