Ruru Pinot Noir 2020, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 21-Sep-2021
Moderate ruby-red colour, lighter on the rim. The nose is full, hearty aromas of game overlying red and black cherries, raspberries, grounded pepper and toasty oak elements. Medium-full bodied, aromas of red and black cherries, intermix raspberries, grounded black pepper, game/ farm nuances and toasted cloves. The wine has a meaty palate, accompanied by a light grip of fine-textured tannin and integrated, lively acidity, flows to a creamy closing. Match with lamb and roasted pork over the next 3-4 years. Fermented to 13.7% alc, aged in barrels, 10% new oak. 17.5/20 pts (88 pts) Sept 2021 RRP $26
