Misha's Vineyard 'The High Note' Pinot Noir 2009
27% New French Oak (300 Litre Hogsheads), abv - 14%
Light ruby with medium concentration and a bright purple rim
Nose and Palate: While immediately varietal with a clean and forward expression - this wine also captures a gentle feminine side as well. There is also a wild thyme layer that speaks to its Central Otago loco' as well as a complexity only Olly Masters can bring to a wine with his blending skills and understanding of oak. The palate does reflect the [still] youthful side to the wine with fine yet piquant tannins. The wine finishes as it began with a gentle feel and the tannins again reminding me of the fine texture and complexity they have brought to this expression.
