Trig Hill Vineyard Pinot Noir 2014
4th September 2019
"The bold, youthful 2014 vintage (5*) was estate-grown, 400 metres above sea level, at Bendigo, in Central Otago. Hand-picked, it was fermented mostly with indigenous yeasts and matured for 18 months in French oak barriques and puncheons (30 per cent new). Deeply coloured, it is a powerful, fragrant, mouthfilling wine, with fresh, concentrated flavours of plums, spices and herbs, lively acidity, savoury notes adding complexity, and a lasting, harmonious finish. Well worth cellaring, it should be at its best from 2021+."
