Rocky Point Central Otago Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 18-Nov-2015
Dark ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues, lighter on the rim. The nose is slender and tightly bound in presentation with aromas of dark red cherry fruit along with nuances of liquorice, thyme herbs, earth and mineral elements. The aromatics grow in depth and concentration with aeration. Medium-full bodied, the palate is elegant in proportion with bright, lively and vibrant dark red cherry fruit flavours expressed with purity and clarity. Nuances of herbs and minerals emerge to lend detail and interest. The mouthfeel is lively with lacy acidity and a fine line of tannin guiding the wine to a light, fruit-focussed finish. This is an elegant, refreshingly lively Pinot Noir with red cherry fruit and a fine-textured line. Serve with firm-fleshed seafood, poultry, pork and antipasto over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked fruit from the company’s two Bendigo vineyards, indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 9 months in French oak. 17.0/20 Nov 2015 RRP $28.00
