Tiki ‘Koro’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 10-Apr-2015
Moderately deep ruby-red colour with light, youthful purple hues, paler on rim. This has an elegantly proportioned nose with good depth and intensity of black cherry fruit along with subtle layers of black florals, spices and savoury whole cluster stalky elements. A complex herbal and lifted floral amalgam becomes revealed with aeration. Medium-full bodied, the palate features a tight core of black cherry and black berried fruit. The fruit has layers of savoury whole bunch dried herb and stalky notes, and dark florals providing interest. The mouthfeel is firm with a fine-grained, elegantly textured line and is enlivened by crisp, racy acidity. This has excellent linearity and fine concentration, the acidity carrying the fruit and the structure to a long, lingering, juicy and mouthwatering finish. This is an elegant, tightly bound, lively-fruited Pinot Noir with subtle savoury complexties. Match with Middle Eastern and Mediterranean inspired red meat dishes over the next 5-7 years. Fruit from the Wanaka sub-region, fermented with 15% whole bunches to 14.3% alc., the wine spending 4 weeks on skins and aged 14 months in oak barriques. Winemaker: Dan Dineen. 18.5/20 Apr 2015 RRP $34.95
