Wild Earth Pinot Noir 2022, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 23-Aug-2023
Moderately deep purple with a ruby hue, lighter on the rim. This has an enticing bouquet packed with dark fruit, herbs and spice. Medium-full bodied, aromas of dark cheer, plum intertwined with thyme, nutmeg, cinnamon and a hint of cocoa. The fruit is rich with density, and finely-weaved tannins contribute to a velvety mouthfeel supported by lacy acidity. This Pinot Noir is generous and harmonious, with fine tannins, dark fruit and spice featuring herbaceous nuances. Match with lamb loin and confit duck over the next 5-7 years. A Central Otago regional blend, fermented with 22 % whole bunch, 18-28 days on skins, aged in French oak barrels for 12 months, 20% new oak. Vegan friendly. 18.5/20 pts (93 pts) Aug 2023 RRP $49
