Terrace Edge Pinot Noir 2018, North Canterbury

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 11-Feb-2021
Deep, ruby-red with some depth and good transparency, lighter edged. The nose is elegant, delicate aromas of blackberries, black cherries melded with game and red earth, along with dried herbs and an amalgam of spices. Medium-full bodied, flavours of blackberries, cherries intermixed plums; dried thyme and petals enriched the profile, unfolding game and earthy richness. Silky tannin extraction flows poetically; lingers with lovely intensity and lacy acidity. The wine shows graceful development of game and dried botanical characters, added another layer of complexity. Match with venison and lamb over the next 5+ years. Handpicked, indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5 alc, ages in French oak for 12 months. 18.5+/20 pts (94 pts) Feb 2021 RRP $32
