Rockburn The Chosen 777 Pinot Noir 2021, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 15-Sep-2022
Deep ruby-red, lighter on the rim. The nose is softly full, with aromas of red and black cherry with a suggestion of cranberry entwined with lifted floral and warm spices. Medium-bodied, aromas of red and black cherry and cranberry melded with black pepper, cinnamon, hibiscus, savoury earth, and underlying richness. The mouthfeel is silky, with natural, supple tannins contributing to a light grip. Balanced, lively acidity carries spice through to a clean, lifted finish. This elegant Pinot Noir with underlined richness shows red and black fruit, flows on a lifted line of floral and acidity and has a fine tannin structure. Match with pork and duck over the next 6-8 years. Fruit from Parkburn, clone 777, fermented in 7-tonne fermenter, cold soaked for 8 days, fermented over 1 week with daily plunging, 13.5% alc, post ferment maceration for 10 days, then aged 14 months in 1 & 2 y.o. French oak barrels. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Sep 2022 RRP $99
