DOCTORS FLAT PINOT NOIR CENTRAL OTAGO 18
This is a robust Pinot Noir with a full body and deep aromas of dark, ripe flavours. Think black plums, cherries and earthy smoked mushrooms, all intermingling with cardamon and fresh cinnamon notes. The grapes in this wine were all hand picked with 22% added as whole bunches to add lift and structure to the fermentation, which was with wild yeasts in small tanks. The finished wine was aged for 12 months in barrel followed by another six months in tank. The 680 dozen wines made were all bottled 18 months after harvest. It’s dry, intense and earthy in style. A youthful wine now that will reward further aging.
