Super Nanny 2015/16 Pinot Noir
Winery : Nanny Goat
This is the 'super' version of popular Central Otago Pinot Nanny Goat. Each season winemaker Alan Peters-Oswald chooses a couple of batches of outstanding fruit from the vineyard to give it the Super Nanny treatment: 'hand sorting, gentle handling, wild ferment, inclusion of whole bunches, extended skin contact and 15 months maturation in French oak.'
Deep and brooding pinot... Richly coloured with aromas of dark cherry, charry oak, mocha and wet stone, lifted by the perfume of red roses. Lithe in the mouth, despite the density. Ripe, juicy fruit mingles with chalky/chewy fine tannins. It's a poised pinot now (with air), but cellaring will add layers of complexity. After 3 stunning vintages, Super Nanny is now in the league of the super-premium Central Otago Pinots.
