Wild Earth Reserve Earth and Sky Pinot Noir 2021, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 29-Jun-2022
Deep ruby with a purple core, lighter on the rim. This has a savoury, gentle entry, aromas of brown mushroom interweave floral, thyme and a black fruit core. It has an enticing synergy between the savoury nuance, floral and herb. Medium-bodied, ripe cherries and blackberries melded with an amalgam of spice, unveiling thyme, purple flower and brown mushroom. Silky tannins flow smoothly with lacy acidity, showing strength, finesse and vitality. The flavours melded harmonious, youthful in appearance, and will benefit from short-term ageing. This fragranced Pinot Noir possesses savoury black fruit, thyme and floral on a supple, refined palate. Match with smoked duck and pork over the next 8+ years. Selected parcels from Bannockburn sub-region, fermented with 0-25% whole bunches, averaged 18%, on skins maceration 21-28 days, aged for 12 months approx in French oak barriques, 24% new oak, 14% alc. Vegan friendly. 19/20 pts (95 pts) June 2022 RRP $65
