Carrick have a long-standing history of producing premium organic wines from their Central Otago vineyards and this 2018 Bannockburn Pinot Noir is another exceptional release from this trusted brand.
Vinted from fruit off 25 year old vines, this is classic Central Otago Pinot with flavours in the red fruit spectrum and subtle earthy notes. Well-balanced with delicate tannins.
The winery writes "This is classic Central Otago Pinot Noir, with good structure, earthy tones alongside red fruit and great balance, with at least 1 year of bottle age before release. Classic, well-balanced, generous."
Sam Kim writes "It's spicy and savoury on the nose showing dark cherry, dried herb, smoked game and earthy mushroom aromas, followed by a finely textured palate delivering elegant weight and finely drying tannins."
