Wild Earth ‘Special Edition’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2014

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 10-Jan-2017
Bright, moderately deep ruby-red colour, lighter edged with purple hues. The nose is very elegant and refined with aromas of fragrant dark red cherry and raspberry fruit, along with violet florals, unfolding nuances of thyme herbs and liquorice. This possesses aromatic finesse and beauty, detail and intensity. Medium-full bodied, vibrant, lively and aromatic fruit flavours of dark red cherries and raspberries feature with dark red and violet florals. Thyme herb and liquorice detail add to the interest. The mouthfeel has vitality and energy, enlivened by fresh acidity, and the wine flows along a fine-textured line composed of powdery tannins. The wine carries to a long and elegant, aromatic finish of raspberries, herbs and florals. This is a beautifully fragrant and refined Pinot Noir with dark cherry and raspberry fruit, aromatic florals, and a vibrant, velvety palate. Match with poultry and pork dishes over the next 6-8 years. The first release of a ‘Special Edition’ wine. Hand-picked fruit from Bannockburn, clones 5 and 115, destemmed and fermented to 13.6% alc., the wine aged 7.5 months in 24% new French oak barriques. 19.0/20 Jan 2017 RRP $65.00
