Tiki ‘Koro’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 11-Nov-2013
Even ruby-red colour with some depth and light purple hues on rim. This has an elegantly presented nose with concentrated, dark cherry and berry fruit infused with savoury dried herbs at the core. The bouquet reveals subtle, complexing aromas of earth, minerals stalks and undergrowth. Medium to medium-full bodied, softly broad and open flavours of dark cherries and raspberries flow with subtle savoury earth and dried herb interest and detail. The fruit is supported by fine-grained tannins that grow in presence and firmness, providing plenty of structure and texture. The acidity is balanced and integral, and the flavours flow discreetly to a softly textural, dry and long finish. This is a subtly complex-flavoured Pinot Noir that possesses and rests on its fine, firm structure. Match with coq au vin and casseroles over the next 5-7 years. Pinot Noir fruit, 60% from Gibbston and 40% from Bendigo, fermented to 13.0% alc., the wine aged 11 months in French oak barrels. Winemaker: Dean Shaw. 18.0/20 Nov 2013 RRP $34.95
