Ceres Wines

Ceres Wines Composition Pinot Noir 2011 Central Otago
Classic Ceres style with lightly spiced cherry - fresh and dried - carefully selected oak with hints of brown spices and an 'old World' edge to the earthy layer; basically quite a complex bouquet and requires an 'eyes closed' technique when smelling the aromas. On the palate - dry, firm, taut and youthful with tight medium+ tannins and acid to match; lots of spice and warmth from the alcohol; balanced  - although I would recommend with food at this age - medium+ complexity and length. Overall a very clever wine - well made.
