Wild Irishman ‘Three Colleens’ Gibbston Central Otago Pinot Noir 2012

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 08-Jul-2014
Full, dark, deep ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues. This has a concentrated nose with aromas of ripe dark raspberry fruit and thyme herbs along with intriguing game-like and vegetal reduction notes. Medium-full bodied, soft lush and fleshy fruit flavours of ripe dark raspberry fruit, red liquorice and dark herbs are complexed by minerally reductive elements. The mouthfeel is soft and supple, with balanced extraction and structure, along with good background acid freshness and liveliness. The flavours flow with vibrancy to a juicy, sweet, lingering finish. This is a soft and plush, raspberry-fruited Pinot Noir with some funky, minerally reduction. Match with beef, lamb and game meat over the next 5-6+ years. Fruit from the ‘Brennan’ vineyard, fully destemmed and indigenous yeast fermented to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 10 months in 40% new French oak. 135 cases made. 18.0-/20 Jul 2014 RRP $40.00
