Amisfield Pinot Noir 2014

Central Otago Pinot Noir for me tends to have sinewy tannins and whilst this is muscular, the alcohol fills out the body well.

Amisfield Pinot Noir, Central Otago 2014

10% whole bunch and 23% new French oak. Heady nose: white pepper, brown spice, thyme, black cherry and drinking chocolate. Deep charred plum and cherry flavours, intense dark dark chocolate and finishing with a rosewater kiss. It’s seductive, it’s brooding, it’s rippling. The tannins latch on, like a piece of armour. Serious stuff.

RRP:  $50

Alc: 14%
