"Razorback" Central Otago Pinot Noir 2011

RE-RELEASE CELLAR DOOR ONLY 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
Hand harvested fruit from the Highwater Vineyard at the southern end of Bendigo, on the eastern side of Lake Dunstan has been used to craft our 2011 SV Central Otago Pinot Noir. The nick name "Razorback" refers to the jagged peaks of the mountains surrounding the district. The fruit was chilled and transported to Auckland for vinification. We have used very gentle and traditional techniques to make this wine and this allows the quality of the fruit to shine through. The wine spent just under a year in French oak (20% new) and it was undisturbed during this time apart from topping. Once assembled, the wine received a gentle filtration and was bottled.
