Pinot Noir - Bannockburn 2006

The tasting notes

Pinot Noir - Bannockburn - Click to purchase

Central Otago's Domain Road Vineyard, near Bannockburn, is sited in a sheltered valley which provides a unique micro-climate, ideal for producing premium wines.

The Wine

Five different clones were hand-tended and hand-picked and, after initial fermentation in stainless steel, the wine was aged for 10 months in French oak barrels. This was followed by a further six months in-bottle before release.

The 2006 Pinot Noir displays velvety supple tannins and well balanced acidity.

Aromas of cherries and plums, and hints of cream and spice with herbal complexities make this an elegant Central Otago Pinot Noir. Initially tight but opens up freely. Enjoy decanted and brought to room temperature in winter or try slightly chilled (14-16°C) in summer. <

Food match: cinnamon, 5 spice, duck, lamb.
