Pyramid Valley Pinot Noir 2017 Central Otago
Dark ruby core with plum and ruby highlights and a light pink hue at the rim. Aromas remind me of both the mineral soil attributes of Otago and the smashed strawberry fruits of Martinborough. On the palate however many of the hallmarks of a Central Pinot show with dark cherry, dried raspberry and savoury core with hints of wild thyme and minerals. Noticeable tannins and abundant acidity, a youthful wine with a core of vitality. Lengthy finish. Best enjoyed soon and through to 2024.
