Lindis River Pinot Noir 2007 Central Otago 13.3%
N: Aromas of juicy and ripe light red fruits: cranberry and raspberry then red cherry - soon after a sense of light and wandering undergrowth, schist and dry clay; an oak note adds spice and character.
P: Medium body; juicy - light red fruits (the same as experienced on the nose) are in combination - with moderate volume and voice; The tannins have a touch of firmness (still showing youth) so I expect they will continue to settle in over the next 3 years. The oak flavor is mild and adds a layer of complexity and structure. A sound and dry finish with medium length. 3 Stars.
