TattyBogler Otago Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 10-Feb-2015
Full, dark, black-hued ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues. The nose is full and softly voluminous with stylishly restrained fruit aromas of savoury, dark red berry, cherry and plum fruit interwoven with complexing earth, spices and nutty oak elements along with resiny nuances. The nose builds in intensity with aeration. Medium-full bodied, ethereal flavours of dark red berry and cherry fruit are lifted by dark red florals and complexed by savoury, earthy notes. Some nutty oak detail and resinous oak nuances are present adding interest. This is well-concentrated with fine-grained tannin extraction forming a good core. This has good drive and linearity, with soft acidity enlivening and the mouthfeel, providing freshness, carrying through to a long, lingering finish. This is a fine-grained, firmly extracted Pinot Noir with complex, savoury dark red fruits with perfumes and nutty notes. Match with wild pork, lamb, beef and Mediterranean fare over the next 6-7+ years. Hand-picked fruit from the ‘Bannock Burn Creek’ vineyard, destemmed , given a cold soak and fermented with uncrushed berries to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 12-15 months in French oak barriques. 18.0/20 Feb 2015 RRP $35.00
