Tankersley Estate Pinot Noir 2015, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 19-Aug-2020
Moderate, ruby-red with some depth and a slight tinge of garnet. The nose is gently full with vibrant fruit of red cherries, plums, rhubarb preserves, dried and fresh herbs entwined with developed gamey notes, fragrant dried floral, earth and spice. Medium-bodied, aromas of red cherries, plums, rhubarb preserves unveiling dried herbs, dried floral, lingers with gamey and earthy notes, to a black pepper finish. The tannin is fine with a good grip, provides structure. Fruit development of plums and rhubarb preserves along with primary red cherries have good intensity, shows vitality, complimenting dried florals and herbs notes. Acidity is lively, carries flavours throughout the palate to a peppery finish. This is a developed Pinot Noir with flavours of cherries and fruit preserves, dried florals and herbs on a fine tannin structure with a good grip. Match with grilled lamb and venison over the next 3-5 years. 18/20 pts Aug 2020 RRP $34.95
