2019 Central | Central Otago Pinot Noir


Sam Kim | Wine Orbit - 91 points

Sweetly fruited and attractively complex, showing ripe cherry, dried herb, game and toasted nut aromas on the nose, followed by a succulent palate offering smooth mouthfeel and silky texture. It's beautifully rounded and lingering with an elegant savoury finish. At its best: now to 2024. May 2021.

Deep ruby-black with good transparency, faintly lighter edged. The nose is softly full, aromas of black cherries, blackcurrants and black tea leaves, interweave baking spices and a hint of thyme. Medium-full bodied, aromas of blackcurrants, cherries intermix black tea fragrance, unfolding nutmeg, cinnamon and dark herbs linger on the finish. The wine has a lovely structure supported by lacy acidity and a light fine-grained tannin grip. Black tea fragrance extended the fruit, added interest. Match with smoked duck and wild boar over the next 5 years. 18.5-/20 pts (92 pts) May 2021
