Carrick Billet-Doux Central Otago Pinot Noir (2019)

Still youthful, the 2019 vintage (4.5*) is certified organic. Estate-grown, it was hand-harvested, matured for nine months in old French oak barriques, and bottled without any fining, filtration or additions. Deeply coloured, it is full-bodied and vibrant, with generous, ripe plum, berry and spice flavours, showing very good complexity, fresh acidity, and good potential for cellaring. Best drinking 2023+.
