Amisfield Pinot Noir 2015, Central Otago
Ripe cool climate Otago bouquet of Pinot with ripe red cherry and plum fruits, some dried herb and whispers of wild thyme, wild roses and layers of oak spice and oak wood, emerging complexity as the wine opens in glass. On the palate – fruity, firm, youthful, quite complex and dry. Flavours reflect the nose plus firm needle-point tannins, loads of youthful acidity, great tension and some poise; well made. Drink now though best from 2019 through 2028.
