Carrick Organic Bannockburn Central Otago Pinot Noir 2020

The latest release of this regional classic is certified organic.  Hand-harvested from estate-grown, mature vines, it was matured for 11 months in French oak casks (23 per cent new).    Deep ruby, it is fragrant and full-bodied, with concentrated, ripe cherry, spice and nut flavours, showing excellent complexity, and a lingering finish.   Still fresh and youthful, it’s a savoury, finely structured wine, well worth cellaring to 2024+.
