Mount Dottrel 2007 (Mitre Rocks, Central Otago, NZ)

Mount Dottrel 2007

Clear and bright rich red reflections immediately foretell of good things to come.

Lifted aromas of red forest berries waft from the glass urging the drinker on. The palate displays surprising freshness of juicy fruit, summer berries and cherry mingled with savoury meat, light cedar, rhubarb and a touch of mocha. Beguilingly balanced and rich palate with satisfying good length. Supple, slightly drying, super fine tannins are polished and provide a fittingly sophisticated finish.

At it’s peak but has developed in the cellar very gracefully. It proves that good Central Otago Pinots are worthy of ageing for at least 5 years.
