Peregrine Pinot Noir 2007
Peregrine Wines is located amongst the rugged mountains and lakes of Queenstown, Central Otago, in the South Island of New Zealand. Central Otago`s climate is the closest they have in New Zealand to a continental climate. Founded and owned by Greg Hay, Peregrineís prime focus is on growing premium Pinot Noir from their estate managed vineyards. The fruit for the is sourced from low-cropping vineyards in the Cromwell basin, with a small amount coming from Gibbston. Traditional winemaking techniques are used to produce this Pinot Noir, enabling gentle tannin extraction and creating a complex foundation of flavours and textures. This is a rich and concentrated wine with appealing ripe plum and black cherry fruit. It has a good mouth feel and persistent finish.
This particular wine from Peregrine is called Saddleback- Central Otago NZ Garnet/ruby red hue Violet and cherry, pensil shavings, leather(?) Cherry, mushroom(?),earthy lots of length with fruity yet acidic finish. I think with a bit more age this wine will become more elegant.
