Wild Earth Central Otago Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 10-Jan-2017
Dark, deep ruby-red colour with purple hues, a little lighter on the rim, very youthful in appearance. This has a bold and up-front nose with bright and vibrant aromas of ripe, dark raspberries along with red plums, red and black liquorice, spice elements and a fine, underlying line of thyme herbs. The aromatics are concentrated and build in volume and depth with aeration. Full-bodied, the palate is rounded with stylishly rich and luscious fruit flavours of dark raspberries and dark plums, with soft liquorice and spice notes and nuances of thyme herb. The flavours are harmonious in expression and supported by fine-grained, supple tannin extraction, and the fruit sweetness enhanced by integrated acidity. The wine carries to a sustained finish of raspberries, plums and liquorice. This is a full, up-front, harmonious and rich Pinot Noir with flavours of dark raspberries, plums and liquorice on a supple, rounded palate. Match with lamb, beef and venison over the next 6+ years. Hand-picked fruit from Bannockburn, clones 777, 10/5, 115, 667 and 114, destemmed and fermented to 14.5% alc. the wine aged 12 months in 29% new French oak barriques. 18.5+/20 Jan 2017 RRP $42.00
