2019 Lake Hayes Pinot Noir Central Otago
Region: Central Otago, New Zealand
Winemaker: Sam Davies
Winery Established Date: 1999
Hand-picked fruit was destemmed into fermenters before 3 days of cold soaking. The ferment took 7 days, with gentle plunging to balance the tannin extraction. The wine was pressed off the skins soon afterward in order to capture the bright fruit, before maturing in French oak barriques for 12-15 months. A juicy and bright style of Central Otago Pinot Noir. Definitive of the Pisa subregion with plush red fruit on the palate, followed by gentle, fine grained tannins.
Super easy drinking, fruit driven Pinot Noir from one of my favourite New Zealand Wine regions. Cherry, plum & raspberry aromas jump from the glass. Soft tannins from a slight kiss of oak is perfectly balanced against Pinot Noir’s reknown acidity. Great afternoon drop to finish off a Friday in the office.
