Quartz Reef Bendigo Estate 2013 Pinot Noir Central Otago
Wow! Fragrant and buoyant aromas crushed minerals, dark red berry fruits, sweet violets, lightly spiced oak (perhaps some Mercury barrel) and organic feminine fragrances - complex, enticing and very sophisticated. On the palate - double wow! - everything the nose suggests and more, a complete palate experience with textures, flavours of wild berry fruits and spice floral and mineral nuances to tease out the palate; fine to chalky almost course tannins, medium+ acidity and a long complex finish. A very youthful example too with best drinking from 2017 through 2025. Love it!
