Terra Sancta 2016 Estate Pinot Noir
Winery : Terra Sancta
Terra Sancta is one of the oldest established vineyards in Bannockburn, sub-region of Central Otago. The pinots from here are full-flavoured and balanced, always retaining pinot noir's elegant form.
The 'Estate' Pinot in the Terra Sancta range is drawn from all of the estate vineyards on Felton Road, including the famed Jackson's and Slapjack blocks.
Michele's notes: Abundantly generous perfume - sweet cherry with candied violet then licorice/aniseed with breathing. It really is a great nose. Slippery and salty in the mouth, the delicious licorice element making its presence felt. Fruit cake spice too.
Overall there is a lovely flow to the wine, perfect weight - not heavy, not light, just right. Very right.
