The Ramsay Central Otago Pinot Noir 2015
Moderately deep, dark ruby-red colour, lighter on the edge. The nose is softly full and well-packed with dense and harmoniously integrated aromas of ripe, dark-red berry fruit intermixed with complexing dried and dark herbs. Medium-full bodied, the palate is harmoniously interwoven with soft and gently rich flavours of savoury dark-red berry fruit along with a layer of dried herbs.
The flavours carry with good linearity to a lingering finish of savoury red fruits and herbs. This is a gently rich and softly concentrated Pinot Noir with harmonious and integrated complex flavours of savoury red fruits.
Serve with coq au vin and casseroles.
Hand-picked Pinot Noir fruit from the ‘Ramsay’ vineyard, indigenous yeast fermented with 20% whole bunches to 13.5% alc., the wine spending 25 days on skins on average and aged 10 months in 20% new French oak barrels.
