The Ramsay Central Otago Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 26-Nov-2016
Moderately deep ruby-red colour, lighter on the rim. This has a full and harmonious nose with layers of savoury dark-red berry fruits interwoven with dried thyme herbs and red florals and soft, complexing notes of game and earth. Medium-bodied, the palate possesses a moderately concentrated core of savoury red berry fruits melded with layers of thyme herbs, whole bunch stalk elements, and game and earth detail. The fruit is supported by light, but positive, fine-grained tannins and the acidity is integrated, lending background energy and tension. The wine carries to a light, lingering, savoury red fruited finish with dried herbs and game. This is an elegant Pinot Noir with savoury red berry fruit, dried herb and game flavours on a dry, fine-textured palate. Match with coq au vin and casseroles over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked fruit from Parkburn, indigenous yeast fermented with 25% whole bunches to 14.0% alc., the wine pending 25 days on skins and 10 months in 18% new French oak barriques. 17.5-/20 Nov 2016 RRP $38.00
