EON of Bendigo Pinot Noir 2012 Central Otago
Accolade Wines NZ Ltd
The bouquet of a wine that is ready showing a level of both ripeness and a transition through to bottle-development; raspberry, red and dark cherry, stony mineral, a touch of savoury spice and complexity overall is obvious. On the palate – a facsimile of the bouquet with vibrant textures from finer tannins and toasty oak as well as medium+ acidity. A lengthy finish showing off the fruit, oak and earthy qualities. Still coming together; balanced and well made. Drink now and through 2026.
