Valli Bendigo Vineyard Pinot Noir 2022, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 23-Nov-2023
Moderately deep ruby-black, slightly lighter on the rim. The nose is plush with power, displaying aromas of black cherry, plum, sautee mushroom, warm spices and herbs. Medium-full bodied, aromas of black cherry and plum melded with red cherry, unfolding cinnamon, nutmeg, clove hints of floral, mushroom and thyme. The tannins are silky and ripe with firmness and juicy acidity, carrying warm spice throughout the palate and lending a plush, lengthy finish. This Bendigo Pinot Noir is harmonious and generous with flavours, showing power and spice on a structured mouthfeel. Match with spiced lamb and five-spice roast duck over the next 12+ years. Fruit from Lakefront Terrace fermented with 35% whole bunch, aged 11.5 months in French oak, 25% new oak. 14% alc. 19/20 pts (95 pts) Nov 2023 RRP $85
