Wild Irishman Macushla Pinot Noir 2019, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 12-Nov-2020
Moderately deep, ruby-red colour, lighter on edge. The nose is soft, poetically fragrant, penetrating red florals, red cherries, red plums, along with delicate aromatic spices underlay minerals. Medium-bodied, the palate is soft and delicate, nuances of red cherries, red plums have a taut core intermix a smoky element, minerals, unfolding subtle cinnamon and florals. The mouthfeel is supple and soft, ethereally silky, with gently extracted tannins, light-weighted structure; along with lacy, integrated acid and freshness. Floral fragrance growing in concentration on the palate lingers with detailed spices to a sustained finish. This is a soft and gentle, red cherry and plum fragranced Pinot Noir with delicate details on an ethereal silky, supple palate. Match with braised pork and roasted pigeon over the next 4-6 years. Minimal intervention winemaking, handpicked fruit from Kinross Vineyard, wild fermented to 13.5% alc. Minimal sulphur used at the end of MLF, unfined and unfiltered. 167 cases produced. 19-/20 pts (95 pts) Nov 2020 RRP $69
