Burn Cottage Valli Vineyard Pinot Noir 2017 Gibbston, Central Otago
Tense vibrant bouquet of Pinot Noir. No mistaking the immediacy with which this wine greets the nose - ripe red berry fruits, sweet, toasty spices of oak and a distinctive stony mineral core with an alluring floral and truffle-like mushroom note. Youthful, tense and dry on the palate with flavours of red berry fruits and spices of of the kitchen and oak. Abundant tannins - ripe and distinctive with a chalky texture, medium+ acidity and long detailed finish. An immediately enjoyable wine with concentration, poise and finish. Delicious, balanced and well made. Drink now and through 2026.
