Ruru Pinot Noir 2021, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 21-Sep-2022
Deep ruby-red with a black core, even colour throughout. The nose is elegantly full, greeted with red floral, bright aromas of cherry, and red berry entwined with thyme and bergamot. Medium-bodied, aromas of cherry and red berry are sweet in expression with well-balanced tartness, unfolding thyme, bergamot, red flowers, and black pepper lingers to a long finish. Finely extracted tannin provides a silky palate and texture; juicy and tart acidity brings out the concentrated fruit and lengthens the finish. This is an elegant Pinot Noir with concentrated red fruit, thyme, and floral interest. Match with pork and duck over the next 5+ years. Fermented to 13.8% alc, aged 10 months in French oak barrels, 10% new oak. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Sep 2022 RRP $27
