Amisfield RKV Reserve Central Otago Pinot Noir (2016)

Estate-grown and hand-picked from selected blocks in the Rocky Knoll Vineyard at Pisa, in the Cromwell Basin, the 2016 vintage (5*) was fermented with indigenous yeasts and matured in French oak barriques. Already very expressive, it is ruby-hued, fragrant and mouthfilling, with cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours, complex, savoury and smooth. A delicious mouthful, it should be at its best 2021+.
