Paul Henry's Own PHPN Pinot Noir 2016 Central Otago
Produced and bottled by Invivo Wines - Very youthful bouquet, a little closed though still revealing the core of Otago fruit with dark cherry laced with baking spice and a whisper of pepper; moderate new oak and some earthy qualities. On the palate - firm youthful textures with medium+ acididty and tannins that need time to resolve and integrate, flavours of dark cherry and red berries fruits laced in newer oak continue to dominate the flavour. Overall a sound, dry wine with plenty of time to integrate ahead. Decant for service or preferrably enjoy from late 2017 through 2023.
