Domain Road Pinot Noir Central Otago NZ
The grapes were hand harvested between 20th - 24th March 2018 from Domain Road and Defiance vineyards. The fruit was de-stemmed into stainless steel tanks and inoculated with selected wine yeast to carry out the fermentation. The wine was aged in French oak barriques for approximately 10 months, of which 27% was new oak.
Deep purple and fragrant, with red cherry, dark plums, blackberry, violets, leather and spice on the nose. The palate is rich and concentrated with dark red fruits and hints of tobacco and coffee. A complex concentrated wine with ample velvety tannins, a lovely mineral acidity and a very long finish.
