Ceres Composition Pinot Noir, Central Otago

Ceres Composition Pinot Noir, Central Otago

Central Otago has become world famous for producing brilliant Pinot Noir: the cool-climate, long ripening season and inland location on the 45th Parallel, similar to Burgundy, seems to bring out the best qualities of this finicky grape. The grapes come from the Bannockburn sub-region; a blend between grapes grown on co-owner Matt Dicey’s Black Rabbit Vineyard and his brother James Dicey’s Inlet Vineyard; the wine made by the family is only produced in tiny quantities. It shows a lifted bouquet of ripe dark cherry and stewed plum and a toasty smokiness. The palate is juicy and crunchy with sweet, ripe cherry, strawberry and spices, finishing silky and smooth.
