"Razorback" Central Otago Pinot Noir 2015

Black Doris plums, hints of tamarillo and a lovely background of subtle oak. Full bodied for Pinot, with firm, yet fine grained tannins and masses of sweet fruit in the mid palate.
Winemakers Notes

‘Razorback’ is a word that evokes images of rugged peaks, and a harsh, but beautiful, landscape. That’s definitely true of the vineyard that we have sourced this wine from. It is grown in the Tussock Ridge Vineyard, on the north side of the Clutha River, in between Clyde and Alexandra. This wine is an assemblage of Clones 5, 115, 667 and 777. Hand harvested and then barrel aged for seven months (20% new). The wine came out of barrel at the start of March 2016, received a light fining and was bottled on 18 April 2016.

Tasting Notes
Colour: Deeply coloured for a Pinot Noir, this wine has a red/purple core and a rim.
Bouquet: High toned floral notes, red cherries, Black Doris plums, hints of tamarillo and a lovely background of subtle oak.
Palate: Full bodied for Pinot, with firm, yet fine grained tannins and masses of sweet fruit in the mid palate.

Cellaring
Already approachable, but we expect this wine to develop for a number of years.
