Tankersley Estate Pinot Noir 2015, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 30-Nov-2022
Deep ruby-red with a slight garnet hue, lighter on edge. This has a full, elegant yet powerful bouquet, with aromas of plum and dark cherry interweaved with violet, baking spices, dried sage and thyme, and earthy elements. Medium-full bodied, aromas of plum and dark cherry have a sweet core, enveloping baking spices, dried sage and thyme, violet, liquorice and earth. The fruit is succulent and plump, showing concentration and strength. Velvety tannin framed the palate in silk, supported by lively acidity, carries to a rich, long, elegant finish. This robust Pinot Noir possesses plush fruit, ample spice and herb, enriched by bottle age, earthy aromatics on a velvety, lively mouthfeel. Match with lamb and wild boar over the next 5 years. Fruit from Pisa, fermented with 30% whole bunches, aged 1 year in French oak. 14% alc. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Nov 2022 RRP $24.99
