Sacred Hill ‘Prospector’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2010

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 17-Jul-2012
Dark, deep, black-hued ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues. The nose is very full with deep and densely concentrated aromas of very ripe black plum fruits, along with liquorice notes dark red florals and oak spices. Full-bodied, masses of richly sweet and plump flavours of black plums, and blackberry jam fill the palate. This is lush and fulsome, quite opulent, with flavours of spices and cedary oak unfolding. The fruit is backed by supple, ripe tannins, with acidity showing and providing some energy. The flavours flow to an open, sweetly ripe fruited and well-oaked, long finish. This is a full, openly accessible and opulent Pinot Noir showing very ripe fruit and considerable oaking. Match with Middle Eastern cuisine over the next 7-8+ years. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Awhero' vineyard in Bannockburn, destemmed, given a cold soak and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 12 months in barrel. 18.5-/20 Jul 2012 RRP $59.99
