Kalex Wines

Kalex Wines Central Otago 2012 Pinot Noir 
Nose: So much of what Central Otago is shows in the bouquet of this wine: vibrant almost quivering raspberry and cherry fruits, wild thyme like dried herbs, a schist like soil undergrowth suggestion and plenty of, but not too much, oak.

Palate: Spicy, warm, vibrant, fresh and fruity; red apple skin, cherry and sweet berry flavors; Medium+ acidity and tannins are a formidable match to the fruit core; Dry with a medium+ finish.
5 Stars
You can read by my dialogue above that I like this wine - there's a lot to talk about, But it is a wine that clearly needs cellar time to mature a little in bottle (2-3 yrs) and will age well for 10 yrs - no problem.
