2020 Central Otago Pinot Noir
Bright crimson hue. Alluring lifted aromas of thyme and red cherries. An underlying spicy complexity explodes from the glass. The soft silky texture and fine-grain tannins surround bright red fruits and crunchy acidity which give the wine freshness and length.
~Metro Top 50 Wines 2023 ~ “Pretty, nutty, mealy with citrus fruit notes, there’s texture, concentration and focus on the palate. Bright and deep, like a cold, dark pool on a tropical island.” - Metro Top 50 Wines 2023 judging panel
~ 5 Stars ~ "The 2020 vintage was grown and hand-picked at Manata Estate (formerly Lowburn Ferry) and at Bannockburn. Matured for a year in French oak barrels (25 per cent new), it was then settled and aged for six months in tanks before bottling. Full, bright ruby, it is fragrant and mouthfilling, with concentrated, very vibrant cherry, plum and spice flavours, showing excellent depth and harmony, and ripe, supple tannins. Best drinking 2024+." - Michael Cooper
