Burn Cottage Vineyard 2012 Pinot Noir Central Otago
A romantic and decisive bouquet of deliciously ripe raspberry and cherry fruits wrapped in a blanket of schist like soil qualities and gentle oak and oak spices; my words aren't doing this bouquet justice - it really good! (that's better). On the palate - generous and complex, juicy and feminine; the tannins are ripe, tasty and an integral part of the texture which teases the palate with velvet then a youthful wake-up thwap! Acidity is a quiet medium+ and the finish is delightfully long. From a less than ideal vintage this is a fabulous wine and will love your cellar for a decade or more to come.
