Terrace Edge Pinot Noir 2020, North Canterbury

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Canterbury & Waipara
Review Date : 13-Mar-2023
Moderately dark ruby, lighter on the rim. The nose is lifted and alluring with plum and dark cherry aromas melded with violet, dark herbs and earth. Medium-full bodied, aromas of dark cherry, cherry plum and black raspberry, unfolding violet, thyme, sage, liquorice, nutmeg and cinnamon, and earthy aromas round up a savoury closing. The wine is concentrated with great balance acidity, bringing liveliness; silky, fine-grained tannins adorn the structure and savoury elements. This Pinot Noir is savoury with dark fruit, spice and floral details, fine-grained tannin structure and a long, balanced finish. Match with duck and lamb over the next 8+ years. Handpicked, fermented with indigenous yeast to 13.5% alc, aged in French oak for 12 months. BioGro organic certified. 19/20 pts (95 pts) Mar 2023 RRP $32
