An exclusive to Woolworth’s stores such as Dan Murphy’s and BWS. A very vague labeling with little information of vinification and viticulture.
South Island, Pinot Noir, Central Otago, 2016
A dull garnet colour in the glass. Aromas of sweet cherry and Damson plums with stinky/sweaty savoury notes before a distinct confected boysenberry and vanilla paste component. Tart and sappy sour cherry, just present tannins (almost as an afterthought) and bitter/burnt oak character. Maybe served with a little chill or alongside food will help the balance.
