Rockburn Pinot Noir 2019, Central Otago

Pinot Noir from New Zealand - Otago
Review Date : 28-Jul-2020
Dark, medium ruby-red with depth and a black tinge, youthful, even throughout. The nose is young, gently-full with aromas of black cherries, sweet plums, blackcurrants, melded with sweet herbs and oak spices detail. Medium-bodied, aromas of blackcurrants, black cherries have a good core of concentration, along with mocha, dark herbs, lingers with oak spices to a supple, elegant finish. The palate is fresh and silky with supple fine-grained tannin extraction, provides structure. Lively acidity lightened the black fruit, spices and herbs, flows smoothly along to a voluminous, moreish finish. This is an elegantly, fine Pinot Noir with flavours of blackcurrants, black cherries, along with mocha and herbs, supported by lively acidity on a fine-grained tannin structure line. Match with lamb and duck sausages over the next 4-6 years. Fruit from Gibbston 17%, Parkburn 83%. Fermented in tanks to 13.5% alc. Then aged for 10 months in French oak, 33% new, 18% 1-year-old. 18.5+/20 pts July 2020 RRP $49.99
