Judge Rock Central Otago Pinot Noir 2012 13.2%
Lots of varietal lift in the bouquet with sweet and floral scented strawberry and cherry fruit suggestions; schist soils and moderate (+) oak suggestions; quite charming and feminine as the wine begins to unfold with a few extra swirls; medium + complexity.
On the palate - dry with youthful flavors of tart cherry and sweet plum, cranberry and cherry also make their mark on the palate; medium+ acidity adds bite with the tannins settling in at medium and with a fine edge.
Balanced and well made with medium+ length and finish. Very nice indeed.
