Te Kano Pinot Noir 2018, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 10-Jul-2020
Bright, light ruby-red colour with depth, slightly lighter on the rim. The nose is elegant with fragrances of lifted florals, red cherries, red berries, along with savoury, earth and iodine. Medium-bodied, the palate is focused with a strong presence of herbs, thyme and spearmint, red fruit of cherries, berries, entwined with savoury, earth and perfume. There is a concentration of fruit weight on the palate, interweaved powdery fine-grained tannins. The acidity is smooth and well-balanced, carries the herbs and fragrance with elegance, flows with delicate spices to linearity. This is an elegantly fragrant Pinot Noir with flavours of red berries and cherries, along with herbs and powdery, fine-grained tannin structure. Match with duck and lamb over the next 5-8 years. 100% Pinot Noir, clones Abel, 115, 777, 667, 943, 6. Handpicked, destemmed, 15% whole bunch. Fermented to 14% alc.
