Rippon Mature Vine Pinot Noir 2016 Lake Wanaka, Central Otago
Extremely youthful bouquet of Pinot Noir with aromas and scents of spice and earth, red fruits and crushed flowers, tea and old rose. Equally youthful on the palate with a vibrant and energy filled flavour profile - crushed rocks, dark red berry fruits, oak spice and whispers of smoke, organic and adventurous. Dry and lengthy, savoury, dried herb offset with a core of red berry fruit flavours. Youthful textures from tannins and acidity. A delicious wine but also a very young wine. Decant for service if opened before 2021. Best drinking 2022 through 2032.
