Salomon & Andrew Central Otago Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 01-Apr-2017
Even ruby-red colour, paler on the edge with slight purple tints. The nose is softly full and voluminous with ethereal aromas of red cherry fruit with subtle nuances of thyme herbs, unfolding red floral elements, with suggestions of raspberries and liquorice. Medium-full bodied, the palate has a well-concentrated heart of dark-red cherry and raspberry fruit layered with red florals and dark herbs. The mouthfeel is fine-featured with flowery tannin extraction and balanced by fresh acidity. The palate has good linearity, carrying to a light, lingering finish of cherries and raspberries. This is an elegantly concentrated and fine featured Pinot Noir with cherry and raspberry flavours on a refined-textured, fresh palate. Match with poultry and pork over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked fruit from Bannockburn, fully destemmed and given a cold soak, and fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 9 months in approx. 25% new French oak. 17.5+/20 Apr 2017 RRP €25.00
