Cherry Block Central Otago Pinot Noir, New Zealand


Grown amongst the lush cherry orchids of Central Otago, this fragrant and spicy Pinot Noir has vivid aromas of black cherry fruit on the nose with herbal undertones.

The palate is mineral driven with fine spiciness under pinned by sweet fruits. Great by itself or enjoyed with venison, duck and turkey.

Gold (5-Stars) - Dish

“A skilfully crafted, cherry-crammed pinot with plum, cherry, anise, cola, juniper and dried herbs that instantly wowed our judges. ‘Richly structured, pure, earthy and rich,’ noted Ant, while John and Mike were impressed with its fine-grained, grippy tannins and sweet oak saturation. Very delicious drinking.”

 

Tasting Notes: This fragrant Central Otago Pinot Noir has vivid aromas of black cherry and spice - cinnamon. The palate has black cherries, crushed red berries, spicy tannins and dried herbs with savoury notes and mineral undertones.  Intensely fruity &  juicy, with a  vibrant yet silky palate. 

 

Cherry block is a collaboration project between a top Otago producer and the team at Antipodean Sommelier. "We have created a Central Otago Pinot that showcases the typical characters that have made Central Otago famous in the world of wine. The extreme continental climate of Central Otago is one of fiercely cold nights and long, warm summer days. It is these intense conditions combined with the lush surrounding cherry orchards that serve to create the vivid, rich and spicy nature of Cherry Block Pinot Noir."

 

Food Match : Great match for venison or duck - great on it's own!
