2012 Brennan Pinot Noir

2012 Brennan Pinot Noir

Ripe and vigorous with driven floral notes and underlying cedar char. A mature palate shows earth, mushroom and game with nutmeg spice and dark cherry fruit. Velvety tannins support and structure the wine through a long lingering finish.

Review from Raymond Chan 

Brennan Gibbston Central Otago Pinot Noir 2012 *****

Moderately dark, deep, black-hued red with garnet hues, a little lighter on the rim. The bouquet is full, bold and up-front with solidly packed aromas of rich, ripe dark-red berry fruits layered with savoury dark thyme herbs and complex notes of stalk, game, mushroom and complexing, lifted, cedary oak. Medium-full bodied, the palate features rich and lusciously succulent fruit flavours of savoury red berry fruits, dark plums, thyme herbs, lifted florals and savoury game, undergrowth and mushroom flavours. The mouthfeel is robust and vigorous with accessible tannin structure and integrated, soft acidity enlivening the fruitiness. This has a rich core that carries to a long, fulsome finish of rich, savoury red fruits.

This is a fulsome, vigorous and robust Pinot Noir with savoury fruit and complexing layers of interest on an accessible, but well-structured palate. Match with game meats and casseroles over the next 6+ years.
