Black Cottage Central Otago Pinot Noir 2020

$24.00

Bright and perfumed releasing lifted blackberry and cherry aromas with hints of tobacco. The palate is full of vibrant red currant flavours and a light dusting of spice. A good acid frame and grainy tannins contribute to an integrated mouthfeel and a smooth, juicy finish.

Description

Winemakers
Notes

The continental Central Otago climate is one of extremes – the fiercely cold nights and long, warm summer days allow the black queen to display pure, vibrant fruit. From vineyards in Alexandra and Gibbson, the fruit was handpicked from traditional Pinot Noir clones 667 and Abel.
The wine was hand plunged and 10% whole bunches added back to the ferment. The wine was then matured with French oak for eight months.
