2015 Quartz Reef Central Otago Pinot Noir 375ml

Description

A handy 375ml format for one of Central Otago's favourite Pinot Noirs, Rudi Bauer, winemaker at Quartz Reef was named NZ winemaker of the year at the 2010 Royal Easter Show, an apt recognition for a man who was one of the early winemakers at Rippon and early adopter of biodynamics around 25 years ago. This 2015 Quartz Reef is still youthful so would benefit from some time in the decanter prior to enjoying, or 5-7+ years in the cellar.

Smells

A floral nose backed up by brooding dark berries and an earthy savoriness.

Tastes

Full and weighty on the palate with incredible length and creamy texture. The palate has a firm backbone of ripe, velvety tannins with lively acid supporting fruit characters of black plum, blackberries and dried herb. This is a very complex Pinot deserving of it 95 point rating.
