Scott Base Central Otago Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 04-Apr-2016
Light ruby-red colour with purple hues and some depth at the heart, lighter edged. The nose is softly concentrated with harmoniously interwoven aromas of dark red cherry fruit with delicate nuances of thyme herbs and spices, and aromatic red floral elements. Medium-bodied, the palate features bright, vibrant and fresh fruit flavours of red cherries entwined with subtle notes of thyme herbs and red florals that form an elegant core. The mouthfeel is enlivened by crisp, lacy acidity and the palate flows along a fine line with supple tannin extraction. This has good tension and vitality, and carries to a bright, juicy finish of red cherry fruit. This is a fresh, vibrant, fruit-focussed Pinot Noir with flavours of red cherries and a lively, supple mouthfeel. Serve with firm-fleshed seafood, poultry and pork, and with Asian cuisine over the next 4 years. Hand-picked fruit, clones 777, 667, 5 and 10/5, destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine spending 25-30 days on skins, the wine aged 10 months in 15-20% new French oak. 17.5/20 Apr 2016 RRP $34.99
