Black Estate

Black Estate Pinot Noir 2012 Waipara Valley 13%
A bouquet with complexity and depth - mature vine aromas melded with well chosen oak alongside gulps of pinosity: mineral laden light red fruits and gently spiced oak and lite-brown spice suggestions.
On the palate - lots of pinosity and youth - a wine still in development. Dry with flavors of light red fruits and plum, lots of fine tannins with the fruit and oak sources competing a little - again a wine still in development; complex with a great mineral signature and finish.
