Winesmiths Central Otago Pinot Noir 2013

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 15-Oct-2014
Dark, moderately deep ruby-red colour with youthful purple hues. The nose is soft and restrained, but with good presence, showing ripe dark cherry and raspberry fruit aromas, along with slight minerally elements, revealing raspberry liqueur and liquorice nuances with aeration. Medium-full bodied, bright and up-front fruit flavours of dark cherries and raspberries are the feature on the palate. This is juicy and lively, the fresh fruit enhanced by the acidity and the mouthfeel has a robustness from granular tannins. The wine carries to a red-fruited, dry and textural finish with spice notes. This is an up-front, lively Pinot Noir with a grainy, robust structure and juicy fruit. Serve with pasta, poultry and pork, as well as barbecued fare over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked Bendigo fruit, 90% clones 667 and 777 with 10% clones 6 and 5, fully destemmed and fermented to 14.0% alc., the wine spending 16 days on skins and aged 10 months in 20% new French oak. 17.5-/20 Oct 2014 RRP $26.95 Disclaimer: This wine is distributed by ‘Wine2Trade’, the company under which ‘Raymond Chan Wine Reviews’ operates
