Rocky Point Central Otago Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 03-Jul-2014
Even, dark ruby-red colour, with youthful purple hues. The nose is elegant and quite restrained, with aromas of ripe, dark raspberry fruit infused with subtle dusty, black mineral notes, expressed with a steely freshness. Medium-bodied and somewhat shy, this has a sweet core of black cherry and raspberry fruit flavours along with subtle liquorice and earthy, minerally elements. The palate has a slippery flow, the energy and tension enhanced by lacy acidity. Fine grainy tannins are integral with the fruit, and the palate leads to a light, aromatic, primary, dark cherry-fruited finish with juicy sweetness. This is a shy, youthfully bound Pinot Noir with lacy acid and structure to see it unfold over the next 4+ years. Serve with duck and pork dishes. Hand-picked fruit from the company’s two Bendigo vineyards, indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged in French oak barrels. 16.5+/20 Jul 2014 RRP $27.50
