Amisfield RKV Reserve Pinot Noir 2013 Central Otago (RKV - is the rocky Knoll Vineyard)
Ripe, juicy and lush red berry fruits aromas with a mix of savoury spice, oak and youthful raw energy; the complexity builds too as the wine begins to unfold in the glass. On the palate - very youthful with plenty of tension from the tannins and acidity, the fruit does find its way through in the end  - a reminder that this style from the Amisfield stable needs proper cellar time to integrate fully and find its true harmony and sweet spot; a complex and lengthy finish ensures some of this potential. 
Best enjoyed from 2019 through 2025 - and likely beyond.
94 Points
