Kuru Kuru Central Otago Pinot Noir 2018


A different iteration of Central Otago Pinot Noir to the usual. The colour is less Otago bold and concentrated, coming in lighter hues of red. Offers confection-flecked aromas in musk joined by red berries, earth, black pepper and cassia bark. The role of spice and, in particular, a distinctive peppery drive also marks the wine as less traditional Otago. Amid all of the rich, ripe black cherry and plum fruit, that splash of pepper brings a shift in gears, adding real lift and life to the wine. However, rest assured, the regional stamp of texture and generosity remains fully intact.
