Ostler Pinot Noir 2017 Waitaki Valley

A lovely bouquet of Pinot with aromas of limestone and gentle savoury tones, light red fruit aromas of red cherry, plum and raspberry. Oak aromas are gentle with lightly sweet scents of vanilla and baking spices. Youthful on the palate with a mix of fresh and slightly tart red fruits - these will ease and integrate over the next 1-2 years; fruit flavours match the bouquet with cherry in the lead. Fine chalky tannins and plenty of acidity. A slightly lighter weighted wine with a youthful energy and charm, light savoury limestone chalky finish. Well made. Best from early 2020 through 2025.
