2011 Fush n Chups Central Otago Pinot Noir
12 x 750ml Bottles
Cracka ReviewFrom our friends that brought us the Fush n Chups Sauvignon Blanc comes the new Central Otago Pinot Noir - a lovely bright and juicy little number that is glowing with very pretty fruit and backed with fine silky Pinot tannins. So much Pinoty joy in this light red, but backed with enough structure to make this a serious wine.
Winemaker's NoteThis Pinot Noir comes from a selection of vineyards in Central Otago, including the Alexandra and Lowburn districts. The vineyards are carefully managed with shoot and leaf removal to aid in ripening, and crop thinning to increase concentration and flavour. The grapes were both handpicked and mechanically harvested.
Each parcel of fruit from the selected vineyards were processed separately in open top fermenters. Cold soaked prior to primary fermentation the parcels then underwent an extended maceration before a gentle pressing into a mixture of new and seasoned French barriques. Each parcel was then lightly fined, prior to blending and subsequently lightly filtered.
This deep red pinot has notes of red plum and berry fruits on the nose. Its ripe red fruit flavours complemented by oak, intensify on the palate with hints of cherry and liquorice, delivering a long supple finish.
