Tiki ‘Koro’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2011

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 07-Mar-2013
Full, dark, black-hued ruby-red colour. This has a full, vibrant and concentrated bouquet of dark raspberry and black cherry fruit aromas along with a thyme herb underlay, revealing subtle violet florals and flinty mineral notes and some oak spiciness adding complexing detail. Medium-full bodied, rich and elegantly proportioned, this has finely concentrated flavours of ripe black cherry fruit supported by refined and harmonious tannin extraction. This is supple, juicy and succulent, with a silky, smooth mouthfeel, enlivened by bright, lacy acidity. A little alcohol drive is present, adding to the sweetness, and exotic Asian spice and oak toast elements emerge, forming an attractively lush finish with long and sustained flavours. This is a silky smooth and lush, fine-featured Pinot Noir with ripe black fruits and, spicy interest. Serve with Middle Eastern and Asian duck dishes over the next 5-6 years. A blend of 61% Gibbston Valley and 39% Bendigo West fruit, fermented to 14.1% alc., the wine aged 11 months in one, 2 and 3 y.o. French oak barrels. Winemaker: Christopher Keys. 18.5/20 Mar 2013 RRP $35.00
