Description

From our China Terrace vineyard, located in the Bendigo subregion of Central Otago, this wine has a red fruited nature, complex and sweet fruited, with a savory tannin profile.

At an altitude of 320m, this vineyard retains a coolness relative to Bendigo's natural warmth. This and the site's complex mix of soil, gives wines of fresh, bright complexity. This wine is complex and brooding with many years ahead of it.

2016 China Terrace Pinot Noir

The Bendigo-sourced 2016 China Terrace Pinot Noir features attractive floral and tea-like aromas, backed by wonderfully pure and direct black cherry fruit. It's medium to full-bodied, with enough dusty, savory tannins to warrant cellaring for another year or two.

5 Star - Raymond Chan

2016 China Terrace Pinot Noir

Dark ruby-red colour with hints of garnet, lighter on the edge. The nose is voluminous with an array of aromatics, showing dark-red cherry and berry fruit along with dark and dried herbs, savoury whole bunch stalk complexities and lifted dark-red florals. The nose grows in depth and density with aeration unfolding oak elements. Medium-full bodied, the palate has full and deeply concentrated flavours of sweetly ripe black and dark-red cherry and berry fruit with nuances of raspberry liqueur, and a layering of complexing dark herbs and whole bunch stalk perfumes.

The fruit is encased b plenty of fine-grained tannin extraction with integrated acidity. The flavours are carried by the structure to a long, sustained, grainy-textured finish. This is a fulsome Pinot Noir with an array of dark-red cherry and berry fruit with dark herb and whole bunch complexities on a well-structured palate.
