Charcoal Gully Central Otago 'Sally's Pinch' Pinot Noir 2011 14%
N: Very youthful on the nose with cranberry and cherry notes, medium to medium+ oak suggestions, some brown spices, with an earth/mineral quality and overall moderate complexity.
P: Dry and slightly warm, dried herb quality and then cranberry, cherry flavours with medium+ tannins and acidity. A youthful wine on the palate as the tannins are showing a course unresolved edge, but I am confident that this wine will integrate showing great promise by the end of 2013. Some Pinot Noir just need time.
