Pinot Noir 2000

2000 was an even lower cropping year than 1999 with yields (thanks to frosts) little more than half the previous year. The colour is similar to the '99 wine - possibly slightly lighter but still dense with a pure hue. The nose is rich, smelling of rose petal and manuka flowers, red and black berries, plums, fruit cake spices and roasted nuts. The flavours evoke similar descriptions : raspberry, black fruit and rich plum, Xmas cake spices and hints of mint. The palate is well structured with soft velvet tannins - similar to that of the 1999 wine, but with slightly more emphasis on the front palate as befits the year. I see no reason why it should not be as long lived as previous wines of the better vintages. View cellaring information >
