Wooing Tree Bettle Juice Pinot Noir 2019, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Central Otago & Waitaki
Review Date : 25-Jun-2021
Bright, ruby-red with moderate transparency, slightly lighter edged. The nose is elegant, softly penetrating fragrant aromas of thyme, red florals, Bing cherries and subtle spices. Medium-full bodied, nuances of Bing cherries, boysenberries intermix thyme and red florals; black pepper and cinnamon linger on the finish. Fine-grained, smooth-textured tannin provides a light grip; lively acidity flow towards a moderately long finish. Match with duck l'orange and dry-cured coppa over the next 4-6 years. Handpicked fruit, cold-soaked, hand plunged 3 times a day during peak fermentation. Aged in 100% French oak for 8 months, 28% new oak. 18+/20 pts (91 pts) June 2021 RRP $28
