Nockie's Palette Georgetown Central Otago Pinot Noir (2018)

The very graceful 2018 vintage (4.5*) is a single-vineyard red, grown at the eastern end of the Kawarau Gorge. Ruby hued, with a fragrant, gently spicy bouquet, it is an elegant, youthful wine, with very good depth of ripe cherry, plum and spice flavours, savoury notes adding complexity, and supple tannins. Best drinking 2022+. The vigorous 2017 vintage (4.5*) is still very youthful at four years old. Mouthfilling, with full, bright colour, it has concentrated, vibrant, plum and spice flavours, woven with fresh acidity, and savoury notes adding complexity. Set for a long life, it should be at its best 2023+.
