Bald Hills Single Vineyard Central Otago Pinot Noir

Expert Reviews

Michael Cooper (2010 Vintage) says
Estate-grown at Bannockburn, hand-harvested at over 25 brix, and matured in French oak barriques (40 per cent new), the 2009 is a concentrated, tightly structured red, showing long-term cellaring potential. It has fresh, deep cherry, plum, spice and nut flavours, savoury, complex, and underpinned by firm tannins. The 2010 vintage was matured for 11 months in French oak casks (50 per cent new). Deeply coloured, it is very youthful and fruit-packed, with concentrated cherry, plum and spice flavours that have lapped up the new oak. A muscular, firm wine with lovely ripeness and richness, it should be at its best 2013+.

Michael Cooper (2007 Vintage) says
Estate-grown at Bannockburn, hand-harvested and matured in French oak barriques, the 2007 vintage is deep and youthful in colour, with generous flavours of ripe plums and spices, vibrantly fruity, moderately firm and showing good complexity. Still youthful, it's built to last.
