Cherry Block Central Otago Pinot Noir 2017

30.00

The extreme continental climate of Central Otago is one of fiercely cold nights and long warm summer days. It is these intense conditions combined with the lush surrounding cherry orchards that serve to create the vivid, rich and spicy nature of Cherry Block Pinot Noir.

Vintage and Winemaking notes: 2017 vintage presented us a long growing season allowing the fruit to ripen well and catch the best of the late autumn sun. Grapes were 100% handpicked in 2 batches on 4-6th and 18-27th April 2017 from vineyards in the Alexandra basin. A mixture of Pinot Noir Clone 5, 667 and 115 grapes were used. Bunches were 100% destemmed, then macerated for between 18 and 21 days. Following fermentation, the wine was matured for 10 months in French oak barrels.

Tasting Note: Youthful and fabulously fragrant, the bouquet shows dark plum, cherry, floral and subtle spice aromas, followed by a juicy palate that is vibrant and silky at the same time. The wine delivers pristine fruit flavours and smooth texture, finishing long and juicy. Beautifully fruited and immediately appealing.
