Craggy Range 2011 Calvert Pinot Noir
Winery : Craggy Range
Craggy Range 2011 Calvert Pinot Noir is the last in a line of gloriously jubey Calvert Pinots from this famed Central Otago Bannockburn site.
With the purchase last year of the famed Calvert Vineyard in Central Otago by Felton Road and Cloudy Bay, there will be no new vintages of Calvert pinots from Craggy Range and Pyramid Valley. Felton Road will continue to produce a Calvert Pinot under their label, Cloudy Bay will use the fruit for their Central Otago label.
Vineyard notes: 'Sweet aromatics of black cherry and plum are complemented by wild thyme and tea. Ample sweet fruit fills the palate with youthful acidity and fine tannin providing length and an elegant feel to the finish.' 10% whole bunch, 11 months in oak, 30% new.
