Grasshopper Rock Earnscleugh Vineyard Pinot Noir 2016 Central Otago
Very enticing bouquet with aromas of wild red berries, fresh red cherry and tart raspberry. The savoury seam that is typical to this producer is evident in this example - adding complexity and character. Moderate impact of oak with brown spices and mild toasty wood messages. Tense, dry, youthful and engaging textures on the palate. Youthful acid line adds poise and tension through the palate; flavours of berries return. A young wine needing cellar time. Best drinking from 2020 through 2026.
