The quintessence of Central Otago Pinot Noir â€“ powerful and seductive. This wine is a blend from two of the warmer sub- regions in Otago, each one contributing unique characters that make up the final blend. The hot, North-facing slopes of Bendigo bring warmth, ripe fruits and structure.
Bannockburn contributes aromatics, richness and density to the mid-palate. From hand-reared vines, the semi-continental climate and free-draining silt and gravel soils produce vivid and concentrated Pinot Noir. This is a wine with broad shoulders yet soft hands that have laid out a fruit feast.
You will be greeted with black cherry, red plum, vanilla bean and wild thyme on the nose. Ripe boysenberry and cream flavours adorn a rich and rounded mid-palate that finishes with subtle notes of cocoa and cloves. The use of some whole bunch fermentation adds backbone and a subtle dried herb complexity. Toasted oak contributes savouriness and while the tannins assert their presence, they are also warm and inviting. A complex fruit bomb with a serious demeanour and broad but svelte structure.Â
Central Otago Pinot magic with ripe fruits, enticing aromatics and a concentrated palate.Â
10 months in French oak barriques (30% New).
