Two Degrees Central Otago Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 17-Feb-2015
Full, very dark, deep, purple-hued black-red colour, lighter on rim. The nose is tightly bound and elegant in presentation with good intensity of ripe, primary black cherry and dark raspberry fruit aromas. Subtle liquorice, thyme herb and spicy elements unfold, adding to the richness and detail. Medium-bodied, the palate is well-proportioned with finely concentrated flavours of dark raspberry fruit entwined with liquorice, herbs and spices. The fruit is sweet and shows fleshiness, with supple tannins at the core. Fresh, bright, lacy acidity enlivens the fruit richness and lends tension and drive. The wine carries to a long, dry, raspberry-fruited finish. This is an elegant, bright and juicy, raspberry-fruit Pinot Noir with elegant concentration and supple mouthfeel. Serve with poultry, duck and lamb dishes over the next 5-6 years. Fruit from the ‘Two Degrees’ vineyard, indigenous yeast fermented with a portion of whole clusters to 14.38% alc., the wine spending a month on skins and aged 12 months in 30% new French oak barriques. 18.0/20 Feb 2015 RRP $39.00
