CARRICK PINOT NOIR CENTRAL OTAGO 17
Organically certified, hand picked grapes from two vineyards make their way into this full bodied, complex and savoury Pinot Noir. Cairnmuir and Arthur’s Vineyard in Bannockburn are the vineyards and all the grapes were fermented with wild yeasts, which tends to broaden the range of flavours that develop in great Pinot Noir (and in other wild yeast fermented wines). The finished wines were all aged for nine months in French oak, 20% new, then blended to create this refreshing but dark Pinot Noir which has a long life ahead. Stash it in the cellar or decant and serve in a large glass to open up its flavours now.
