Fifth Bridge

Fifth Bridge Pinot Noir 2016 Central Otago
by Ceres Wines Ltd
A fragrant and attractive bouquet capturing Central Otago Pinosity with a mixture of light red fruit aromas and dried herb with wild thyme and undergrowth; a sense of youthful tension and poise with a nervous energy overall. On the palate – dry, flavourful and as the nose suggest with a youthful structure from the acidity and vibrant tannin effect all off-set with ripe red cherry, cranberry and plum flavours – these will soften in a couple of years. Mild oak layer, light weight, crisp and dry; well made. Decant for service, best from late 2018 through 2026.
