Wild Rock Cupids Arrow Pinot Noir 2007

Winemaker's Notes:

Medium blackish-red in colour. The vibrant aromas are of red berries, cranberry and floral notes with a background of savoury dried herbs and wild thyme. The palate is complex and elegant with raspberry, boysenberry and cherry fruit characters with a rich savoury undertone. Fine sandy tannins and supporting acidity draw the wine into a long, bright finish.

Cupids Arrow Pinot Noir 2007 - Wild Rock: Cupids Arrow Pinot Noir 2007 - Rotwein von Wild RockEin Schwarzrot von mittlerer Intensität funkelt im Glas. Das fruchtig-florale Bukett aus roten Beeren, darunter Kronbeere, und Blüten erfreut die Nase mit seiner lebhaften Art. Hintergründig sind wilder Thymian und wohlduftende getrocknete Kräuter wahrzunehmen. Der Pfeil Amors trifft nicht nur mitten ins Herz, sondern auch in den Gaumen. Elegant und sehr komplex begeistert der Cupids Arrow Pinot Noir 2007 von Wild Rock mit einer herrlichen Frucht, die an Brombeeren, Himbeeren und Kirschen erinnert. Feinkörnige Tannine und eine spritzige Säure runden den aromengesättigen Grundton ab. Das Finale ist klar und lang anhaltend.Zu Gerichten von Lamm und Wild ist dieser Pinot Noir ein Hochgenuss.Weingut: Wild RockLand: NeuseelandRegion: OtagoRebsorte: 100% Pinot NoirInhalt: 0,75 lAlkoholgehalt: 13,5 Vol.%Säuregehalt: 5,5 g/lRestsüße: trockenFassreife: in Barriques gereift (12 Monate)Lagerfähigkeit: 3-5 Jahre ab JahrgangEmpfohlene Serviertemperatur: 16-18 °CAuszeichnungen für den Wild Rock Cupids Arrow Pinot Noir 2007:89 Punkte -Wine Spectator 30.

Serve this on the cooler side, as it tasted better at cooler temperature. I'd suggest serving it straight from cool storage or putting a room temperature bottle in the fridge for a good 30 minutes. The palate is bursting with fruit, again of the darker varieties and not so much the more classic cherry / strawberry you often find in the varietal. This is definitely for the drink now category, but with super fine tannins (like super fine sugar crystals) providing a firm finish, this will last for at least another 2 or 3 years if you are inclined to put away a few for future cons
