Wooing Tree ‘Beetle Juice’ Central Otago Pinot Noir 2015

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 16-Aug-2017
Even ruby-red colour with slight purple hues, lighter on the im. The nose is elegant in expression with a core of dark-red cherry fruit and red florals along with nuances of dark and dried herbs, a little earthiness and nutty oak, revealing a slight resinous hint. Medium-full bodied, the palate has stylishly restrained flavours if dark-red cherries and red florals entwined with dark and dried herbs. Some spice and earthy elements add detail, and the palate unfolds a little nutty oak. The fruit has sweetness and is supported by moderate tannin extraction and grip, with integrated acidity lending some drive. The wine flows positively to a savoury red cherry finish. This is an elegant red cherry fruited Pinot Noir with sweet fruit and notes of herbs, earth, spice and nutty oak on a grainy-textured palate. Serve with game meats and casseroles over the next 4+ years. Hand-picked fruit, clones 115, 6, 667, 777 and Abel from the ‘Wooing Tree’ vineyard, fermented with minimal (1%) whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine aged 9 months in 25% new French oak. 17.5/20 Aug 2017 RRP $28.00
