CARRICK EXCELSIOR PINOT NOIR 2013

Wine Region: Otago, New Zealand

Grape: Pinot Noir

Tasting Notes

An intense nose showing floral aromatics, black cherries, plum and a touch of spice from the barrels providing a beautifully integrated wine. The front palate is layered with dark fruits, oriental spice and complex savoury flavours which support the fine grained tannins. The intensity of the front palate cascades into a lingering seamless finish.

About the Winery

Winery stories are rarely straightforward. They twist and weave as the winery develops a character and persona all its own. And so it is with Carrick. Barbara and Steve Green planted a rabbit infested block of land on the shores of the yet to be filled Lake Dunstan in 1994. Their knowledge was academic, with some practical experience as enthusiastic consumers. They loved Pinot Noir and were impressed with the efforts of pioneers Alan Brady and Rolf Mills in the early 1990s.
