Black Estate

Black Estate Waipara Valley 'Damsteep' Pinot Noir 2012 13%
A strong bouquet with a mineral and soil driven beginning laced with aromas of light red fruits, barrel spices and noticeable complexity; the palate suggests a very youthful wine still in the throws of bringing together the attributes of a fine wine - medium+ fine tannins, medium+ acidity and a taut, tense and poised moment mid palate with more light red fruits a highlight. these finer points will merge and show harmony in 2-3 years. A lovely example, well made and with and medium+ finish.
