2011 Fush n Chups Central Otago Pinot Noir

12 x 750ml Bottles
Cracka Review
From 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 Note
This 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.
Cracka Contributors' Reviews
At first this looks light and simple but with every sip it looks that little more serious and deeper. A tasty light bodied Central Otago that just needs more time in the bottle to really shows its goodies.
A very pretty Pinot Noir from Central Otago – bright ruby red with floral red cherry fruit that is mid weight finishing silky and long with earthy/spicy complexity. Brilliant value for the price.
